The Provincial Lady

(A book in the Provincial Lady series)
An omnibus of novels by

A special edition of The Provincial Lady by E. M. Delafield reissued with a bright retro design to celebrate Pan's 70th anniversary.

The Provincial Lady should lead a charmed, upper-middle class life in her Devonshire village but with a husband reluctant to do anything but doze behind The Times, mischievous children and trying servants, it's a challenge keeping up appearances on an inadequate income, particularly in front of the infuriating and haughty Lady Boxe.

Delightfully witty, the Provincial Lady was the Bridget Jones of the 1930s, documenting the chaotic peculiarities of everyday life with wonderful wit and humour. This abridged edition takes the very best extracts from her first two 'diaries' and presents them as one brilliantly comic novel.
