Class fuels Sue Townsend's cleverly comic The Queen and I. The novel is simply the tale of what happens to the present Royal Family when the monarchy is abolished, its wealth confiscated and the Royals themselves relocated to a public-housing estate. In narrating these doleful events, Barbara Rosenblat takes on the lower-class accents with energy but is most successful, in fact, triumphant, with the Royals, wonderfully evoking their individual states of mind and character--or lack thereof.
