Publisher's Summary

Using her best social-climbing instincts and refusing to be embarrassed, Lucia sets out to conquer London and mingle with the beau monde. Soon a secret group of 'Luciaphiles' springs up; the social climbers who make up its rank never tire of watching her get into and out of all kinds of trouble.

Narration topping, abridgement unnecessary.

Lovely narration - easy to distinguish between characters, and it's a nice change for a Benson adaptation to have a Georgie who is not done in exactly the same camp voice. The abridgement was done very skilfully, it's just a pity they felt they had to abridge it at all; it is so wonderfully written that there is really nothing to cut despite the fact that this is not the best of the novels in the Mapp and Lucia series. In all, a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

Shame the story is abridged

And dare I say that Miriam Margolyes' narration is not as good as Nadia May.......
