ENGLAND TO ME

The imperturbable Emily as with Carola and Charles, she adapts- largely by laissez faire to life in England. Here in random recontage which varies from individual idiosyncrasies to national failings, is an account of their return to the ancestral home in Dorset and the supervision of Mrs. Clifton who ran her household economically if not exotically. There are details of the cold, of the many things they could not get and the many things that got out of order, of hunting, of overstaying houseguests, which included Chinese, neurotic Louise, colored actor James, on route to Russia, Portuguese Domingo, and Australian Lorraine. Of a trip to Portugal, of Charles' retirement from Army to teaching, and lastly of a summer home in America where Charles and Carola retain their impervious British dignity....Diverting enough for the circle of devotees.
