"No matter how appalling, malicious and pretentious the behaviour of Lucia, the reader is always lured into a sense of affectionate complicity with this comic monster" Daily Telegraph "Bitchily observant novel of small-town life" Independent "Sparkles with wicked wit...provides some pointed digs at social one- upmanship and the genteelly disguised venality of the upper classes. But, on another level, it can be hugely enjoyed as class-war subversion" Sunday Times "The pleasure of Mapp and Lucia is summed up, surely, in Alice Roosevelt's bon mot. "If you have nothing good to say about anybody, come and sit right by me." -- Philip Hensher "Oh the joy of seeing Lucia again! These magic books are as fresh as paint. The characters are real and therefore timeless" -- Nancy Mitford The TimesBook Description:
Battle is joined! Relish the underhand schemes and plots that unfold as Lucia vyes with Miss Mapp for social dominion over the town of Tilling.
