Delightful book

by julieCS on Jan 5, 2013

A gentle, lighthearted, delightful book about relationships in an English village of the 1930's, and what happens to them when one of their own - under a pen name - writes a book about them. It's like Georgette Heyer, though the humor is not as pointed. I greatly enjoyed it.


great British dry wit!

If you love Wodehouse, you will love 'Buncle'. Miss Buncle doesn't want to raise chickens, when her money runs short, so she decides to write a book. But she cannot write anything but what she knows, as she has no imagination. So she writes all about her neighbors. This would be fine, but unfortunately she writes very well; her book is accepted and published and becomes very widely read. All her neighbors recognize themselves and go on a manhunt to catch and punish the horrible mole in their midst. If you can read this and not find yourself laughing outloud, then there is something wrong with your sense of humor.
