"All this would be satire if it weren't so much like a diary, and though those who know about such things generally don't tell, Fellowes, a more genial Evelyn Waugh, seems to hide a notebook in his dinner jacket." --People (4 stars)

Author captured the feeling and look of the 60's in upperclass England. There was good character development. I enjoyed reading about those times in London with a mystery plot.Published 2 months ago by Niffer
I laughed my way through this thoroughly English novel. Julian Fellowes recounts some of the travails awaiting young aristocrats as they go through The Season as debutantes are... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Molly Malone
