  • "The Mapp and Lucia series of novels penned by author E.F. Benson is a study in opposites. The vengeful and calculating Miss Mapp, whom many readers love to hate, is balanced out by the social graces of Lucia, who, though good-hearted and well-meaning, often finds herself mired in seemingly intractable snafus. Queen Lucia is the first novel in the series and an engrossing introduction to these two protagonists' shared social milieu."

  • "The fascinating and exhilarating story of Riseholme's reigning queen of high society the indomitable Lucia! England between the wars was a paradise of utter calm and leisure for the very, very rich. But into this enclave is born Mrs. Emmeline Lucas--La Lucia, as she is known--a woman determined to lead a life quite different from the pomp and the subdued and hushed nature of her class. With her cohort, Georgie Pillson, and her husband, Peppino, she upends the greats of high society the imperious Lady Ambermere and her equally imperious dog, Pug; the odious Piggy and Goosie Antrobus; the Christian Scientist Daisy Quantrock, with her penchant for the foreign; and all the rest of the Riseholme itself, the small English town just outside London that the British rich call their country home."@en
  • ""It might be thought that even such activities as have here been indicated would be enough to occupy anyone so busily that he would positively not have time for more, but such was far from being the case with Mrs Lucas. Just as the painter Rubens amused himself with being the ambassador to the Court of St. James--a sufficient career in itself for most busy men--so Mrs Lucas amused herself, in the intervals of her pursuit of Art for Art's sake, with being not only an ambassador but a monarch." -- publisher's web-page."@en
