Publisher's Summary

Arch enemies Mapp and Lucia return in the next instalment of E.F. Benson’s classic series of rural snobbery.

Lucia is now a permanent resident of Tilling and continues her way up the social ladder with gusto, making attempts through the Town Council, finance, a platonic marriage, and even the cricket club. Though Miss Mapp will not allow her to take control of the town so easily, Lucia is up to the challenge as usual. Lucia employs her most dazzling ingenuity and cunning as the pair launches into a fresh storming of lethal civilities.

Good but Elizabth's characterisation inconsistent

Story enjoyable but Elizabeth's character almost unrecognisable in speech and delivery. Deterred from character's relationships.

Lovely story, showing hilarious political insight

Great story, amusing insight into small town politics. Prefer the books to be dramatised rather than just read

superb narration

the rare type of book that you can listen to over and over again while remaining crisp, fresh and merciless.

Endlessly entertaining

I never get tired of these wonderful (albeit abridged) recordings. Miriam as a narrator is superb. I wish EF Benson had written more about Tilling and Mapp & Lucia but these gems of recordings quell the pangs of disappointment
