Eine Lady lässt sich nicht unterkriegen ... England in den 1930er-Jahren. In einem Dorf in der Grafschaft Devon vertraut sich eine Lady mit messerscharfem Verstand ihrem einzigen Freund an – dem Tagebuch. Die Welt hat sich gegen sie verschworen, im Haushalt regiert das Chaos, die Köchin droht mit Kündigung, und ihre beiden überaus reizenden Kinder Vicky und Robin neigen dazu, stets am falschen Ort zur falschen Zeit für Unheil zu sorgen. Von ihrem Gatten Robert, der sich am liebsten hinter der Times verschanzt, hat die Lady keine Hilfe zu erwarten. So kämpft sie allein um Haltung bei Teegesellschaften, Dorffesten, Abendeinladungen und vor allem, wenn sie der grässlich perfekten Lady B. begegnet, die ihre Eitelkeiten wie einen Pudel mit sich herumführt. Ein Glück, dass wenigstens ihr Tagebuch die Lady auf dem Lande nicht im Stich lässt ...

This volume uncovers the ideas concerning everyday life circulating in the burgeoning feminist periodical culture of Britain in the early twentieth century. Barbara Green explores the ways in which the feminist press used its correspondence columns, women’s pages, fashion columns and short fictions to display the quiet hum of everyday life that provided the backdrop to the more dramatic events of feminist activism such as street marches or protests. Positioning itself at the interface of periodical studies and everyday life studies, Feminist Periodicals and Daily Life illuminates the more elusive aspects of the periodical archive through a study of those periodical forms that are particularly well-suited to conveying the mundane. Feminist journalists such as Rebecca West, Teresa Billington-Greig, E. M. Delafield and Emmeline Pethick Lawrence provided new ways of conceptualizing the significance of domestic life and imagining new possibilities for daily routines. /p>

Im Sommer 1914 besucht der Medizinstudent Hugh seine geliebte Tante Agatha, deren Ehemann ein hoher Beamter in der Regierung ist. Er wird begleitet von seinem Cousin Daniel, der von einem Leben als Poet und englischer Gentleman träumt. Agatha besteht darauf, dass das Säbelrasseln auf dem Balkan unbeachtet verklingen wird und dass König, Kaiser und Zar wie immer in ihren Sommerurlaub gehen werden. Zudem ist sie mit weitaus Wichtigerem beschäftigt: Seit kurzem ist sie Mitglied des örtlichen Schulbeirates und befürwortet die Einstellung einer weiblichen Lehrkraft. Als Beatrice Nash mit einem Schrankkoffer und riesigen Bücherkisten in der Kleinstadt ankommt, ist schnell klar, dass sie deutlich freidenkender – und attraktiver – ist, als eine Lateinlehrerin es sein sollte. Beatrice, die kürzlich ihren Vater verloren hat, will vor allem in Ruhe gelassen werden. Ihre ganze Energie fließt in ihre Schriftstellerei und in das Entmutigen möglicher Heiratskandidaten. Nichts ist Beatrice wichtiger als ihre Unabhängigkeit. Doch Daniels Charme und Hughs scharfer Verstand wie auch sein nobler Charakter lassen sie in ihrer Haltung schwanken. Mit Ausbruch des Krieges findet der idyllische Sommer ein jähes Ende. Als die Bewohner von den ersten Soldaten Abschied nehmen müssen, ahnen alle, dass sich ihr Leben grundlegend ändern wird.
