Overview

Sixteen years after she last set foot in the picturesque village of Howling, Flora Poste—the disobedient yet charming protagonist of Cold Comfort Farm—returns to the fray to help her relatives, the troubled Starkadders, who own Cold Comfort Farm. Their farm has been restored as a museum, decorated in false English country style, and has become the venue for a conference of the International Thinkers Group, which includes ineffable painters, insufferable sculptors, eccentric Eastern sages, and a whole plethora of intellectuals whose greatest obsession is annoying and shocking the locals. A satire on the stiff and pretentious English art establishment, this sequel lives up to the audacious and intelligent humor of its predecessor.

Dieciséis años después de la última vez que estuvo en el pintoresco pueblo de Howling, Flora Poste—la díscola y encantadora protagonista de La hija de Robert Poste—vuelve a la carga para socorrer a sus familiares, los atribulados Starkadder, propietarios de la granja de Cold Comfort. La finca ha sido rehabilitada como un museo, decorado en falso estilo rústico inglés, y se ha convertido en el lugar de reunión de una conferencia del Grupo de Expertos Internacionales, entre los que se cuentan pintores inefables, escultores insufribles, sabios orientales excéntricos y toda una plétora de intelectuales fastidiosos cuya máxima obsesión es dejar pasmados a los lugareños. Una sátira sobre el frío y presuntuoso establecimiento artístico inglés, esta secuela está a la altura del humor inteligente y descarado de su antecesora.
