Riassunto: "If you do become a Luciaphile - and of course you will - you'll be in the company of Noel Coward, W.H. Auden..." DETROIT NEWS E.F. Benson's Lucia novels were written in the 20's and 30's and are beloved by a legion of fans around the World. In LUCIA IN LONDON, the impregnable Lucia sets out to conquer London and mingle with the "beau monde" - by using her best social-climbing instincts and refusing to be embarrassed. Soon a secret group of "Luciaphiles" springs up; the social climbers who make up its rank never tire of watching Lucia getting into and out of all kinds of trouble.
From the Publisher: Lucia in London is E.F. Benson's second acclaimed Lucia novel. After her husband's Auntie Amy dies and leaves her London home to Lucia and her sweet but dull husband, Peppino, the Queen of English provincial society attempts to conquer London. Using her best social climbing instincts, nerves of steel, and an absolute inability to be embarrassed, Lucia dresses up "tightum" and prepares to mingle with the beau monde. She skillfully manages to get into London's fanciest parties without being invited, and somehow coaxes the most distinguished and wealthiest guests to come to tea. A secret society of "Luciaphiles" springs up in London, among society members who never tire of watching Lucia get into, and out of, all kinds of trouble. Both a sharply observed social commentary and a masterful comic novel, Lucia in London is a thoroughly enjoyable work from one of England's most gifted satirical authors.
