This antiquarian volume contains E. F. Benson's series of hysterically dry, fictional sketches of high society in Mayfair. The society about which the author writes is one that he knew very well, and each denizen that he illustrates characterises a distinct anthropological type. From Lady Mary, who practices snobbery as an art form, to Mr. Sandow, a socialite vicar interested in everything but spirituality, this masterful piece of satire will appeal to those who enjoy literature of this ilk, and makes for a great addition to any collection. The chapters of this book include: The Compleat Snobs, Aunt Georgie, Quack-Quack, The Sea-Green Incorruptible, The Eternally Uncompromised, The Grizzly Kittens, The Horizontal, The Perpendicular, Pastor, Sing for your Dinner, The Praisers of Past Time, etcetera. We are republishing this vintage book now complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
