The Provincial Lady has a nice house, a nice husband (usually asleep behind The Times) and nice children. In fact, maintaining Niceness is the Provincial Lady’s goal in life — her raison d'être. She never raises her voice, rarely ventures outside Devon (why would she?), only occasionally allows herself to become vexed by the ongoing servant problem, and would be truly appalled by the confessional mode that has gripped the late 20th century. The Provincial Lady, after all, is part of what made Britain great.

    delizioso. viaggio in un mondo a parte, con lo humor protagonista nel tratteggiare le situazioni e lo spirito di un'epoca. di gusto femminile, certo, ma da non lasciarsi sfuggire.

    E' divertente quando segue il flusso della conversazione, gli argomenti in campagna e in città. Interessante il rapporto della borghesia inglese con i figli. Ma, fondamentalmente, è noioso.

    E quindi? India Knight l’avrebbe letto nove volte sbellicandosi dalle risate. Fatemi un favore se mi venisse in mente di rileggerlo, abbattetemi.

    Qualche spunto ironico e ambientazioni very british sono la forza di questo romanzo. Non sempre però regge il ritmo e ci sono degli "avvallamenti Noiosi".

    Leggendo la quarta di copertina lo pensavo piu' divertente; magari il problema sta nella difficile traduzione del British humour. Peccato!
