"The flow of his comic inspiration never dwindles." - Elizabeth Harvey

Here is the redoubtable "triumphantly arch of all arch villainesses", Miss Elizabeth Mapp of Tilling--a schemer, a woman of fine habits and low cunning who sends her days in the delightful bow window of her delightful period house, light opera glasses in hand, noting and annotating the business of her neighbours. Not a things escapes her gimlet eyes, from the purchase of a basket of over-ripe red-currants, to the unfortunate drinking habits of Captain Puffin. Miss Mapp is the third in the sequence of the famous Lucia books. Deliciously funny, outrageously U, quintessentially English, Benson's comic characters have come alive again for another generation.
