Riassunto: This is one of Angela Thirkell's 13 novels set in Trollope's Barsetshire, and peopled with characters from the upper crust of society to the tyrants behind the green baize doors and the miscreants of Grumper's end. Here are the beautiful Mrs Brandon (before whom even the vicar blushes and stammers), fierce Aunt Sissie, the Italy-addicted Mrs Grant and many others. Old and young fall into a hopeless tangle, not unravelled until after the antics of the vicarage fete. Angela Thirkell (1890-1961) was one of the best known comic novelists of her day. She was grand-daughter of Edward Burne-Jones, a cousin of Rudyard Kipling and Stanley Baldwin and mother of Colin MacInnes and Graham McInnes.
About the Author:
Angela Thirkell (1890-1961) granddaughter of Sir Edward Burne-Jones, was born in London. At age twenty-eight, she moved to Melbourne, Australia, where she became involved in broadcasting and was a frequent contributor to British periodicals. She began writing novels after her return to Britain in 1930 and from then on produced a new book almost every year. Her stylish prose and deft portrayal of the human comedy in the imaginary county of Barsetshire have amused readers for decades.
Wanda McCaddon (a.k.a. Nadia May or Donada Peters) has narrated well over six hundred titles for major audiobook publishers, has earned numerous Earphones Awards, and was named a Golden Voice by AudioFile magazine.
