'Observations of daily life are sometimes very funny and the narrator has a good line in self-deprecation' THE TIMES

'It is beautifully written, charming, heart-warming, entertaining, instructive, and delightful' KATE MACDONALD

Tuesday, 23rd

'Late nights do not suit me. Try to think I look interestingly haggard but have to admit that Unkempt Blowsiness is fitter description . . . '

Way before that city slicker, Bridget Jones, there was the Provincial Daughter - an intelligent woman juggling too little money with too many kids in rural obscurity. She did this In between taking deliveries of coal and attending ghastly provincial parties. Our heroine makes tentative forays into the bright lights of London, seeking literary fame and fortune.

At least an uproarious as the bestselling Diary of a Provincial Lady, Provincial Daughter is its worthy and delightful successor, by E. M. Delafield's real-life daughter.
