Publisher Description

E. M. Delafield was a prolific English author, best known for her largely autobiographical ‘Diary of a Provincial Lady’, which took the form of a journal of an upper-middle class Englishwoman living in a Devon village of the 1930’s. Delafield's novels are noted for their elegant and sardonic wit and by a refusal to sentimentalise the lives and conditions of her characters. This comprehensive eBook presents Delafield’s collected works, with numerous illustrations, many rare novels appearing in digital print for the first time, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
