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 ...

E. M. Delafield's largely autobiographical novel takes the form of a journal written by an upper-middle-class lady living in a Devonshire village. Written with humour, this charming novel is full of the peculiarities of daily life. The Provincial Lady of the title attempts to avoid disaster and prevent chaos from descending upon her household. But with a husband reluctant to do anything but doze behind The Times, mischievous children and trying servants, it's a challenge keeping up appearances on an inadequate income, particularly in front of the infuriating and haughty Lady Boxe. As witty and delightful today as when it was first published in 1930, Diary of a Provincial Lady is a brilliantly observed comic novel and an acknowledged classic. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition features an introduction by author and journalist Christina Hardyment. Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift-editions of much loved classic titles. Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

The Feminine Middlebrow Novel 1920s To 1950s

Middlebrow' has always been a dirty word, used disparagingly since its coinage in the mid-1920s for the sort of literature thought to be too easy, insular and smug. Yet it was middlebrow fiction - largely written and read by women - that absolutely dominated the publishing market in the four decades from the 1920s to the 1950s. Neglected by subsequent critical fashion in favour of the work of literary elites, this literature has only recently begun to be reassessed. Aiming to rehabilitate the feminine middlebrow, Nicola Humble argues that the novels of writers such as Rosamund Lehmann, Elizabeth Taylor, Stella Gibbons, Nancy Mitford, and a host of others less well known, played a powerful role in establishing and consolidating, but also in resisting, new class and gender identities in this period of volatile change for both women and the middle classes. The work of over thirty novelists is covered, read alongside other discourses as diverse as cookery books, child-care manuals, and the reports of Mass Observation. Investigating the nature of the feminine middlebrow and its readers, the author considers its variously radical and conservative remakings of ideas of class, the home, the family and gender. Defining her period as running from the end of the first world war to the mid-1950s, she challenges the prevailing convention that sees the second world war as effecting a decisive ideological and cultural break, and offers a revision to the way we currently map thechanging politics of femininity and the domestic in the twentieth century. The first work to insist on the centrality of the concept of the middlebrow in understanding the women's writing of this period, The Feminine Middlebrow uncovers a literature simultaneously snobbish and bohemian, daring and conventional, marked by an ideological flexibility that is the product of its paradoxical allegiance to both domesticity and a radical sophistication.

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.

Ein kleines englisches Dorf steht kopf, als sich dessen Bewohner plötzlich als Figuren in einem Roman wiederfinden. Und nur die unscheinbare Miss Buncle weiß, wer der Autor ist. In dem kleinen englischen Dorf Silverstream sucht Barbara Buncle, eine unscheinbare Dame Anfang vierzig, nach Möglichkeiten, ihr bescheidenes Einkommen aufzubessern. Schließlich hat sie eine Idee: Sie wird ein Buch schreiben, und zwar – da Phantasie nicht ihre Stärke ist – über etwas, das sie kennt. Nämlich ihr eigenes Dorf und dessen Einwohner. Und Miss Buncle trifft genau ins Schwarze. Der Roman, publiziert unter dem Pseudonym John Smith, wird ein Bestseller. Die Kritiker überschlagen sich, doch die Sache hat einen Haken: Miss Buncles Schilderungen sind so authentisch, dass sich die Bewohner von Silverstream prompt wiedererkennen, und nicht alle sind glücklich. Bald dreht sich in dem Ort alles nur um eine Frage: Wer ist John Smith?
