Mapp and Lucia by E F Benson

Mapp and Lucia is a collective name for a series of novels by E. F. Benson

The novels feature humorous incidents in the lives of upper-middle-class British people in the 1920s and 1930s, vying for social prestige in an atmosphere of extreme cultural snobbery. Several of them are set in the small seaside town of Tilling, closely based on Rye, East Sussex, where Benson lived for a number of years and served as mayor.

This series is a subtly brilliant comedy of social rivalry. Emmeline Lucas (known universally to her friends as Lucia) is an arch-snob of the highest order. In Miss Elizabeth Mapp of Mallards, Lucia meets her match. Ostensibly the most civil and genteel of society ladies, there is no plan too devious, no plot too cunning, no depths to which they would not sink, in order to win the battle for social supremacy. Using as their deadly weapons garden parties, bridge evenings and charming teas, the two combatants strive to outcharm each other - and the whole of Tilling society - as they vie for the position of doyenne of the town.

Readers may find some the aspects of the series similar to the Desperate Housewives TV Series set in Tilling instead of Wisteria Lane and in the early 20th century instead of the early 21st.

The novels, in chronological order, are:

Queen Lucia (1920)
Miss Mapp (1922)
Lucia in London (1927)
Mapp and Lucia (1930)
Lucia's Progress (1935)
Trouble for Lucia (1939)
