-Original illustrations by Arthur Watts from the 1932 first edition

“Truly laugh-out-loud funny, as the unnamed diarist chronicles the humdrum every day details of life. Her life involves things mine do not (hiring servants, for one), but her feelings of inadequacy as a wife, parent, housekeeper, neighbour, friend, and citizen really hit home with me and make me howl in recognition. Would love to meet her at one of those dinner parties she is always attending, where she always feels slightly out of place.” Tracy

“If anything, this book is funnier than the first one ... I couldn't stop laughing. What fun!! Bridget Jones is a piker compared to this!” Louise

“Delicious gem of a novel — even better than its predecessor! Told in a witty, telegraphic style, our delightful heroine, now a minor authoress, must balance caring for her children, navigating a foreign watering hole, soothing the frequently ruffled feathers of the French nanny who is always having a crisis, and budgeting within the confines of her shockingly thin bank account (or, unfortunately, budgeting not quite within the confines of her bank account). All of this while trying to write a follow-up book to satisfy her publisher! A dinner party with an old school chum whose glamorous life and ageless skin prompts a crisis for our dear heroine is worth the price of the book.” Laura

“Sometimes it is hard to describe a book or review it because it is really good or really special or really difficult to describe. The Provincial Lady Goes Further is one of them. The story of the provincial lady and her friends and family. The phlegmatic husband Robert, the wild kids and the independent girlfriend. And of course the oh-so-French nanny and the stuck-up neighbour - the list goes on and on. It is a really wonderful book.” WickedWonderfulWords
