Product Description

Product Description

The Definitive Edition of THE PROVINCIAL LADY GOES FURTHER
-Original illustrations by Arthur Watts from the 1932 first edition
-Complete, unabridged, and formatted for kindle to improve your reading experience

“Truly laugh-out-loud funny, as the unnamed diarist chronicles the humdrum every day details of life. Her life involves things mine do not (hiring servants, for one), but her feelings of inadequacy as a wife, parent, housekeeper, neighbour, friend, and citizen really hit home with me and make me howl in recognition. Would love to meet her at one of those dinner parties she is always attending, where she always feels slightly out of place.” Tracy

“If anything, this book is funnier than the first one ... I couldn't stop laughing. What fun!! Bridget Jones is a piker compared to this!” Louise

“Delicious gem of a novel — even better than its predecessor! Told in a witty, telegraphic style, our delightful heroine, now a minor authoress, must balance caring for her children, navigating a foreign watering hole, soothing the frequently ruffled feathers of the French nanny who is always having a crisis, and budgeting within the confines of her shockingly thin bank account (or, unfortunately, budgeting not quite within the confines of her bank account). All of this while trying to write a follow-up book to satisfy her publisher! A dinner party with an old school chum whose glamorous life and ageless skin prompts a crisis for our dear heroine is worth the price of the book.” Laura

“Sometimes it is hard to describe a book or review it because it is really good or really special or really difficult to describe. The Provincial Lady Goes Further is one of them. The story of the provincial lady and her friends and family. The phlegmatic husband Robert, the wild kids and the independent girlfriend. And of course the oh-so-French nanny and the stuck-up neighbour - the list goes on and on. It is a really wonderful book.” WickedWonderfulWords

THE PROVINCIAL LADY GOES FURTHER features E.M.Delafield’s comic classic in a specially designed edition for kindle. This is one of E. M. Delafield’s masterpieces which will amuse and delight you. Read it as it is meant to be read: complete, and unabridged with illustrations from the 1932 first edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very amusing account of a vanished world 10 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a book I've known and loved since my student days, so I was pleased to find it smartly published on Amazon Kindle. Re-reading the Provincial Lady's diaries has been an absolute delight, and the illustrations are a blast, too. I feel ever-so-slightly envious of the lady - constantly fretting about money, but with a quality of life that I could only dream of. Good, light-hearted fun, and a pleasant distraction from the 21st century!

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as much fun as the original 14 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Entertaining frivolity and an insight into the era. I have really enjoyed this and am sure I have met some of the characters somewhere.... Caution: can cause capitalisation in Strange Places.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...or further Adventures of a Provincial Lady! 4 April 2013
By S. Bingley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of my favourite books and I was very disappointed with a Kindle version which was released briefly last summer before being removed - I think I can understand why - it was full of typos.
The Provincial Lady Goes Further continues where the original Diary of a Provincial Lady left off and is a highly amusing account of the life of a fairly ordinary middle class wife and mother living in Devon in the 1930's. The books do not need to be read in any particular order and are perfect for just "dipping into". I can't wait for Kindle versions of The Provincial Lady in America, The Provincial Lady in Wartime and The Provincial Lady in Russia to be released!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing! 8 Sep 2013
By Ivan Behr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An amusing and dryly humorous read with lots of atmosphere . Very English with lots of insight into the English character. I enjoyed it quite a lot!
1.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous number of typos in this version 5 Jan 2014
By Cicely - Published on Amazon.com
Delafield's writing is delightful. I enjoyed the book, but was distracted by the typographical errors in this edition. Did the publisher neglect to hire a copyeditor? Random spaces appeared in words, other words were misspelled, and lowercase "L" was frequently replaced with "i." Very strange. I will read the other books in series, but will definitely find editions from other publishers.
