Summary

The acclaimed author of Mapp and Lucia introduces the beloved Miss Elizabeth Mapp, a devious social climber, in this charming British comedy of manners. In the English seaside village of Tilling, Miss Elizabeth Mapp keeps a thorough notebook about everyone’s business, including her servants. Whatever information she can’t collect through gossip, she discovers with the aid of opera glasses. Looking out from her window over High Street, she pays especially avid attention to her neighbor, Maj. Benjamin Flint, whom she has been planning for years to marry.   The second novel in E. F. Benson’s popular Mapp and Lucia series, which has been adapted for BBC television, offers a biting satire of post-WWI English village life, complete with a cast of colorful characters who all fall under the knowing gaze of “Old Mappy.”  This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
