Copy won on Goodreads Giveaway.

An amusing story about social oneupmanship in a British village. The humor is really on the "comedy of manners" side. I might check out Benson's more well-known Mapp & Lucia novels, but from Mrs. Ames I didn't feel as satisfied with the ha-has as I do when I read Wodehouse.
