Excellent book. Unputdownable and funny! Highly recommended.
I bought Desirable Residences and Other Stories as a present for my daughter. We both love the Mapp and Lucia tales and this included a hitherto unknown one of their stories. It was excellent. E.F.Benson writes with a caustic wit about his characters which although the events are not earth shattering cause his cast great trouble. I bought it with this one story in mind but many of the others are good too. The books are of an earlier time when class and appearances were all important to these people. They are very funny but he is so clever that we can see our friends and relations in them and worse, we can see glimpses of ourselves.
