About the Author:

E. F. Benson was an English novelist, biographer, memoirist, archaeologist and short story writer.

Review:

''An altogethor satisfisfying entertainment; full of humorous situations, sparkling with wholesome wit.'' --Times Literary Supplement(London)

''These fingers have written many accolades about the voice and interpretations of Nadia May (aka - Wanda McCaddon), but they are tingling with pleasure at her rendition of E. F. Benson's characters in the English town of Riseholme . . . Such fun does Nadia May have with the stylized characters that the listener actually lives there and is part of the silly rituals of the '30s . . . Her delight in reading this novel is directly transmitted to the lucky listener.'' --AudioFile

''[The audiobook narrator's] British accent and richly condescending tone are just right for Queen Lucia . . . She breathes the personality of the wealthy Lucia into each sentence.'' --Media

''Benson . . . is best remembered for his series of 'Lucia' novels, delicious satires of the pretensions and foibles of provincial middle-class life in Britain in the 1920s and '30s . . . Queen Lucia, the first in the series, follows Mrs. Lucas (Lucia to her most intimate friends) through a lengthy and often hilarious campaign to derail the career of a would-be rival to the throne of cultural arbiter.'' --Kirkus Reviews
