Mapp & Lucia (Prion Humour Classics) by E.F. Benson

Mrs. Emmeline Lucas is the recently-widowed newcomer to the village of Tilling, eager to wrest the reins of social supremacy from the incumbent Miss Elizabeth Mapp and to install herself as its benevolent dictator. In their polite acts of sabotage, as they ruthlessly jockey for the position of cultural arbiter, Mapp and Lucia tear up the conventions of drawing-room diplomacy and enter a protracted conflict using ftes, garden parties, musical soires, and bridge evenings as their deadly weapons. Things finally come to a head with Miss Mapps audacious attempt to steal her rivals celebrated recipe for Lobster la Riseholme. With a charming satirical bent, E.F. Benson turns the pretensions and snobberies of English village life into a deliciously wicked comedy.
