4.0 out of 5 stars Witty and gives a lovely insight on prewar & wartime life, 30 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Diary of a Provincial Lady (Paperback)
This is in fact three volumes collected into one. They are the amusing diaries of a middle-class Englishwoman covering the 1930s and wartime. While they are not really laugh out loud they do bring a smile, often of recognition. The simple domestic incidents are retold very much in the style that most of us use to tell of funny things that happen to us - a bit flippant and exagerated. This book is best read in small doses (it originally appeared as a series of features in a magazine). I would recommend this book most highly.
