The last of the original series of these novels, this is perhaps the least of them. And that's fair: Benson was in his 70s by the time this novel was published, and would die mere months later. Still, the world of Tilling is richly embroidered and there is plenty of fun to be had. Perhaps the laughs don't come every single line, and one almost feels like one is reading a light novel rather than a light comic novel, but fans will still delight in the madness. Just not a place to start for a newcomer.

Luckily we have numerous authors who have taken up the baton of this series since the 1980s - some wonderful, some less so - so that we are assured that Elizabeth, Georgie, Lucia, Diva, Irene and the gang will never truly leave us.

It is no wonder that, when E.F. Benson decided to further the adventures of his divine Emmeline "Lucia" Lucas, he brought her to the town of Tilling. For here, in the first (pre-Lucia) Tilling novel, everything is absurd and hilarious in equal measure. Indeed, Lucia so o'erwhelms the measure in the later books that it is worth settling in to Miss Mapp to recall how perfect Benson's comic creations are, from the doughty title character to "quaint" (read: queer) Irene, the entire town ready to burst into a frenzy over the hoarding of corned beef or the origin of a recipe for "red currant fool".

My comic ideal.

Comedic sublime. Very much reads like a sequel, actually, so I recommend reading Queen Lucia first, as the entire town's desperately relatable love-hate relationship with the title character really does build from there.
