Lucia in London PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Lucia in London free pdf E. F. Benson s beloved Mapp and Lucia novels are sparkling, classic comedies of manners set against the petty snobberies and competitive maneuverings of English village society in the 1920s and 1930s. The third and fourth novels in the series, "Lucia in London" (1927) and "Mapp and Lucia" (1931) continue the adventures of Benson s famously irrepressible characters, and bring them into hilarious conflict. Both Mrs. Lucia Lucas and Miss Elizabeth Mapp are accustomed to complete social supremacy, and when one intrudes on the other s territory, war ensues. Lucia sees herself as a benevolent if ruthless dictator, while Miss Mapp is driven by an insatiable desire for vengeance against the presumptuous interloper. Their skirmishes played out on a battlefield composed of dinner parties, council meetings, and art exhibits enliven the plots of Benson s maliciously witty comedies."
