Publisher's Summary

The Provincial Lady Goes Further is the immediate sequel to Diary of a Provincial Lady - and life mirrors art.

Our Provincial Lady has found herself, unexpectedly, with a literary success on her hands! She is suddenly 'somebody', both in her Devonshire environs and in London, where she establishes a bolthole - ostensibly so she could concentrate on the much-awaited sequel, but also so that she can enjoy the fruits of being a best-selling author!

In real life, this sequel was the first of many to come, as E. M. Delafield worked imaginatively to satisfy the public demand for antidotes to modernism - especially the hauteur of the Bloomsbury Set.

In art, The Provincial Lady Goes Further, using the same diary format, proves to be just as amusing (if not more so) as its predecessor, and full of pointed observations about her targets - in this case fashionable London of the 1930s (it was published in 1932).

Reader Georgina Sutton again delights in the tones of an upper-class lady, who, up from the country and immersed semi-willingly in artistic and fashionable environs, can't quite equate the posing, the outrageous dresses and equally outrageous behaviour with her eminently well-grounded sense of humour.

    "Hooray,more Provincial Lady!"
    Where does The Provincial Lady Goes Further rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This series of books have been favorites for many years,and it's great to have them as audiobooks.My audiobook rankings start with 'wonderful productions of wonderful books' and go down from there - this is in that top category.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Probably The Provincial Lady herself - but I do like Mademoiselle,with the snide comments...


    What about Georgina Sutton’s performance did you like?

    She is an excellent narrator and gets the tone of the books just right.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - it's not that kind of book,I'm very familiar with it and the pleasure is in being able to dip in and out.
