A witty portrait of rural England in the early twentieth century. When sensible, sophisticated Flora Poste is orphaned at nineteen, she decides her only choice is to descend upon relatives in deepest Sussex. At the aptly-named Cold Comfort Farm, she meets the doomed Starkadders: cousin Judith, heaving with remorse for unspoken wickedness; Amos, preaching fire and damnation; their sons, lustful Seth and despairing Reuben; child of nature Elfine; and crazed old Aunt Ada Doom, who has kept to her bedroom for the last twenty years. Brilliant ... very probably the funniest book ever written... Julie Burchill, Sunday Times.

Characters: 67. Amazon rating: 4 stars. Genre: Fiction.
