9781909653542: Au Reservoir: A New Mapp and Lucia Novel

The final part of Guy Fraser-Sampson's trilogy of sequels to E.F. Benson's hugely popular Mapp and Lucia series, Au Reservoir finds the residents of Tilling on fine form. The War has wrought great changes, and Lucia struggles to come to terms with rationing, exchange controls and, worst of all, a Labour Government. While Georgie and Olga hobnob with the stars in London, Lucia comforts herself with the thought that a title would nicely round off a life of dedicated charitable giving. 'Dame Lucia' does have a certain ring to it. However, even Lucia's best-laid plans are not guaranteed success, especially with the redoubtable Mapp poised for any opportunity to frustrate them. So determined is she finally to gain the upper hand that she even resorts to military strategy under the slightly less than expert guidance of her husband, Major Benjy. Perfect reading for followers of Benson's original novels and sure to be equally loved by P.G. Wodehouse fans, this is a pitch-perfect and deliciously enjoyable social satire of an England long gone but not forgotten.

About the Author :

Guy Fraser-Sampson is a well-known best-selling non-fiction author, and a longstanding Mapp and Lucia fan. His previous Tilling novels, Lucia on Holiday and Major Benjy, have been extremely well-received. Lucia on Holiday was a No. 1 Hatchards Bestseller and featured on Open Book (Radio 4) with Mariella Frostrup. He has received high praise from Benson devotees, including Alexander McCall Smith ("Lucia is back! This is a wonderful new adventure for our magnificent heroine, written with all the style and humour of Benson himself. A triumph. Uno, due, tre ... read it!") and Gyles Brandreth ("More Mapp and Lucia - what bliss! Major Benjy on the rampage - what joy!").

Review :

"Fraser-Sampson's parody is excellent, especially the introduction of Noel Coward and John Gielgud to crank up the already considerable period camp to levels of near-hysteria. Forbidden sexual longing abounds: Quaint Irene the butch painter with her crush on Lucia; Olga the star soprano with her pash on Lucia's husband; Major Flint after everything in a skirt. But the main drama is the grandes dames plotting to thwart each other. Mapp and Lucia are ghastlier than ever, which makes the end surprisingly and powerfully touching." --Daily Mail
