Lucia In London & Mapp And Lucia
Benson, E. F.
"Lucia in London and Mapp and Lucia continue the adventures of E. F. Benson's most famous and irrepressible characters--Mrs. Lucia Lucas and Miss Elizabeth Mapp--and bring them into hilarious conflict. Both women are used to dominating their respective villages in southern England, and when one intrudes on the other's territory, war ensues. Lucia is the more deadly of the two, with lofty morals, pretentious tastes, and delusions of grandeur, while Mapp is younger, more forceful, and able to terrify her opponents into submission. Their constant skirmishes enliven the plots of Benson's maliciously witty comedies."
