"He was a master of a certain kind of light fiction,and he can delight even though one knows that his satire is ultimately friendly...He is clever and funny, but he writes for his victims." - The Spectator
Lucia, Queen of provincial society, now launches herself into the London scene. The creme de la creme of social climbers, Lucia never falters as she dons her real (seed) pearls and prepares to attack her beau monde, wheedling her way into parties where she has not been invited and coaxing the rich and entitled to come to tea. Lucia In London is the second of the famous Lucia books by E. F. Benson. Comic masterpieces, these novels of manners are brought to life by sharp, satirical social observation and are as deliciously funny today as they were when first published in the 1920's.
