Om Mapp and Lucia
A brilliant and subtle comedy on the social rivalries of a small village between the wars. Lucia is probably the greatest creation of E. F. Benson, a social climbing socialite from the small village of Riseholme. A beautifully written and sharply observed comedy, exploring the social life of Edwardian high society. This novel, originally published fourth in the series in 1931, is being republished here together with a new introductory biography of the author.
