From the Publisher:

In a series of hilariously dry fictional sketches, E.F. Benson offers a glimpse of the most exclusive of societies ‹ Edwardian Mayfair. It was a world that he knew intimately, and he presents each of its denizens as a distinct representative of an anthropological ³type.² We meet Sir Louis and Lady Mary Marigold, who practice snobbery as an art form; ³Aunt² Georgie, a cheerful bachelor with a passion for embroidery; Mrs. Weston, a devoted follower of health cults and spiritual fads; Horace Campbell, the poisonous society gossip; Mrs. Sarah Whitehand, the social-climbing wife of an American toilet-bowl magnate; and Mr. Sandow, a socialite vicar who seems interested in everything but spirituality. These and a number of other intriguing specimens, all greedily jockeying for social standing, are impaled, labeled, and preserved for our entertainment on the razor-sharp scalpel of Benson¹s savage wit.

About the Author:
