About this product
- DescriptionShe's back! When arch-sb Emmeline Lucas (kwn universally as Lucia) makes some money on the stockmarket, the wheels are set in motion for a new adventure - and this time, her ambitions are larger than ever. But eternal rival Elizabeth Mapp-Flint is determined to outshine Lucia and she's got royalty on her side. The much-loved Mapp and Lucia series takes a new turn as the two legendary protagonists travel to the continent to lock horns in an idyllic Italian setting. Can Mapp upstage Lucia on foreign soil so far from Tilling? What is Georgie's new valet up to? And will Lucia's financial speculation lead to rags or more riches? 'Lucia On Holiday' is a new addition to the Mapp and Lucia can, based on the immortal characters first created by E.F. Benson. Perfect reading for followers of Benson's original vels and sure to be equally loved by new fans, this is a pitch-perfect and deliciously enjoyable social satire of an England long gone but t forgotten.
- Author BiographyGuy Fraser-Sampson is a well-known best-selling non-fiction author, and a longstanding Mapp and Lucia fan. His first Tilling novel, Major Benjy, was published to much acclaim from Benson devotees, including Gyles Brandreth ( More Mapp and Lucia - what bliss! Major Benjy on the rampage - what joy! ) and Tom Holt ( As you read Guy Fraser-Sampson's sinuous narrative and needle-sharp dialogue, Tilling suddenly takes shape all around you - Benson himself would have loved this book, and so will you ).
