Mapp and Lucia Omnibus : Queen Lucia, Miss Mapp and Mapp and Lucia Paperback
by E. F. Benson
The arrival of the snobbish Mrs Emmeline Lucas (know as Lucia to her friends) to the small seaside town of Tilling causes waves as she threatens the queen bee of Tilling's social circle, Miss Elizabeth Mapp. Against a backdrop of genteel tea parties and bridge evenings a series of hilarious conflicts ensue between the two power-hungry women as they battle on the social stage to gain the ultimate place as the first lady of society.
This edition includes three of E. F Benson's satirical stories of inter-war Britain: Mapp and Lucia, Queen Lucia and Miss Mapp.
