Eugenia Malmains is one of the richest girls in England and an ardent supporter of Captain Jack and the Union Jack shirts; Noel and Jasper are both in search of an heiress (so much easier than trying to work for the money); Poppy and Marjorie are nursing lovelorn hearts; and the beautiful bourgeois Mrs Lace is on the prowl for someone to lighten the boredom of her life. They all congregate near Eugenia’s fabulous country home at Chalford, and much farce ensues. One of Nancy Mitford’s earliest novels, 'Wigs on the Green' skewers her family and their beliefs with her customary jewelled barbs. But there is froth and comedy here too.

"Transports you back in time."
Clever characterisation of hooray henrys and henriettas between the World Wars. Daft and harmless fun.
