Fans of E.F. Benson's Lucia novels may miss the eponymous Lucia in this tale of the English village of Tilling, but they'll have no other quarrels. Nadia May does a hilarious Miss Mapp, the small-minded small-town heiress of a certain age who leads an absolutely full life spying on and attempting to best her neighbors. When Miss Mapp addresses her most disliked rival as "Diva darling," you can hear the way her teeth are set and see the awful smile. Nancy Mitford once wrote that she had feared rereading these astute and funny stories but found them "fresh as paint." They haven't changed yet, and I hope May will give us all of them.
