Eine Lady lässt sich nicht unterkriegen ... England in den 1930er-Jahren. In einem Dorf in der Grafschaft Devon vertraut sich eine Lady mit messerscharfem Verstand ihrem einzigen Freund an – dem Tagebuch. Die Welt hat sich gegen sie verschworen, im Haushalt regiert das Chaos, die Köchin droht mit Kündigung, und ihre beiden überaus reizenden Kinder Vicky und Robin neigen dazu, stets am falschen Ort zur falschen Zeit für Unheil zu sorgen. Von ihrem Gatten Robert, der sich am liebsten hinter der Times verschanzt, hat die Lady keine Hilfe zu erwarten. So kämpft sie allein um Haltung bei Teegesellschaften, Dorffesten, Abendeinladungen und vor allem, wenn sie der grässlich perfekten Lady B. begegnet, die ihre Eitelkeiten wie einen Pudel mit sich herumführt. Ein Glück, dass wenigstens ihr Tagebuch die Lady auf dem Lande nicht im Stich lässt ...
The Diary of a Provincial Lady by E. M. Delafield. Original Illustrations Included. This edition includes: The Diary of a Provincial Lady The Provincial Lady Goes Further The Provincial Lady in Russia A great classic of the national literature, Diary of a Provincial Lady first appeared in weekly instalments in Time and Tide, the feminist weekly. Some might find a contradiction that a book is both national and feminist. But this is the central mission of books and one of the reasons Diary (1930) is a title of choice for our readers. Dryly, neatly, with decorum and with a certain excellence, this provincial English-woman lines up the small events of her days. Her anxieties and irritations, her pride in her children, her impatience with Robert—her inarticulate spouse-—and her bathed effort to eke stimulus from an unseasoned existence—these, lie bedded beneath the schooled restraint of her consciousness. She allows herself, neither temper temperament nor self-pity. Her weapon of compensation is her wit.

"A welcome and necessary addition to the reference shelf". -- Washington Post Book World
La dama de provincias vive en una preciosa casa de campo, tiene dos hijos encantadores y un marido que, cuando está con ella, acostumbra a dormitar tras las páginas del Times. Lleva un diario que le sirve para poner un poco de distancia con las cosas que le suceden; en él escribe sobre sus esfuerzos para equilibrar la economía familiar y lidiar con su temperamental cocinera y la sensible institutriz francesa de sus hijos; así como sobre su lucha constante por mantener a raya a su engreída vecina, Lady B., y sus denodados esfuerzos por estar siempre a la altura de las circunstancias. Con el relato cotidiano de las desventuras de su protagonista, de sus agobios y preocupaciones, de sus pequeños triunfos, E. M. Delafield creó un vivísimo e inolvidable personaje con el que se identificará cualquier lector que se haya sentido alguna vez sobrepasado por los quehaceres del día a día. Publicado por primera vez de forma seriada en una revista de los años treinta y recogido después en forma de libro, Diario de una dama de provincias es un hilarante retrato de la clase alta británica y una de las más divertidas novelas de la literatura inglesa del siglo xx.
