Emmeline Lucas (called "Lucia" by her husband) sees herself as the social queen of her little English village—and she spares no effort to retain her position. Even when she is exposed and embarrassed, she never admits defeat! Miss Elizabeth Mapp is as much a social climber and schemer as "Queen Lucia"…but younger and more terrifying! Touted by Edward Gorey as "wicked, funny masterpieces—and thoroughly addictive," E. F. Benson's delightfully amusing novels from the 1920s—originally published separately as Queen Lucia and Miss Mapp, but bundled together in this special Bas Bleu edition—are pointed social commentaries, full of frivolities to make the reader giggle and smile.
