The Provincial Lady in America
The Provincial Lady in America | E. M. Delafield
1 post | 2 read | 6 to read
Following the success of her literary efforts, The Provincial Lady abandons the daily domestic grind of leaking ceilings and dead rodents in the bathroom for a publicity trip to America. Though initially nervous - as Miss S. of the Post-Office sagely advises, the country is, after all, A Long Way Off - she takes the plunge and sets off. From mixing with the literati to negotiating an unaccustomed number of bath-taps, rebuffing assumptions about England's perpetual fog to visiting her first night-club, our heroine determinedly immerses herself in both living, and providing wry commentary upon, the American Way.

I‘m so enjoying this 3rd installment of the Provincial Lady diaries. This 1934 novel takes our heroine from her small English village to America on a literary tour and it is just SO much fun.

Who else is a fan of the Provincial Lady?
