Show synopsis The Third in the delightful "Provincial Lady" series finds our pungently witty English lady traveling the United States. Her two earlier books were set in Devonshire and London respectively, where she set down her observations of life and letters as they affected her and her menage of husband, two children and assorted servants, friends and acquaintances. In this volume she comes to America on a literary tour. She visits New York, Cleveland, Chicago and the World's Fair of 1932, Boston, Philadelphia and Washington, among other cities -- confiding to her diary as she goes her shrewd and barbed thoughts and queries. Here is no British What's-Wrong-with-America, but rather a delightful See-Yourselves-as-Others-See-You: a challenge to the American sense of humor. Readers of Diary of a Provincial Lady and The Provincial Lady in London will be further amused and charmed by their favorite diarist's trans-Atlantic adventures.
