Overview

Edward Frederic Benson (1867-1940) was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist and short story writer, known professionally as E. F. Benson. Benson’s first book was Sketches from Marlborough (1888). He started his novel writing career with the (then) fashionably controversial Dodo (1893), and he followed it with a variety of satire and romantic melodrama. The Mapp and Lucia series, written relatively late in his career, consists of six novels and three short stories. The novels are: Queen Lucia (1920), Lucia in London (1927), Miss Mapp (1922) (including the short story The Male Impersonator), Mapp and Lucia (1931), Lucia’s Progress (1935) and Trouble for Lucia (1939). Benson was also known as a writer of ghost stories, which frequently appear in collections, and of a series of biographies/ autobiographies and memoirs, including one of Charlotte Brontë. His last book, delivered to his publisher ten days before his death, was an autobiography entitled Final Edition (1940). His works also include: Crescent and Iron Cross (1918) and Michael (1916).

All the cliche'd English types are here - the nosy spinster, the Colonel Blimp, the nobility snob, the gardening fanatic, and others. Only the Miss Marple-like sweet/wise old lady is missing - but then, there are no murders in this novelette. Benson enjoys poking gentle fun at them all. Unlike another reviewer, my eBook showed up fine in my Nook - no edges cut off. Yes, there are the occasional &S#s in place of words, but you get what you pay for, and if you have a twelve-year old native speaker's command of English, you can figure out what word was misread by the digital scanner.

I love Miss Mapp stories, but this e-book edition dowload loses the left edge of print. You can easily guess the words but why should you have to?
