Mapp and Lucia Wikia

Lucia on Holiday is the tenth novel in the Mapp and Lucia series (also known as Make Way for Lucia X) and the second written by Guy Fraser-Sampson.


The much-loved Mapp and Lucia series takes a new turn as the two legendary protagonists travel to the continent to lock horns in an idyllic Italian setting. The welcome return of Olga Braceley, Georgie’s opera singer soul-mate, is counterpointed by new distractions in the form of an Indian Maharajah from Major Benjy’s past, and a mysterious American millionaire. Who is the sinister old gypsy woman who haunts the hotel grounds, and has she put a curse on Lucia? Why is Major Benjy driving a huge Bugatti? What has taken Mr and Mrs Wyse several hundred miles off course? And how could the great Wall Street crash of 1929 affect Tilling’s finest Englishmen and women? Find the answers to these and much more in Lucia on Holiday, a further addition to the Mapp and Lucia canon by best-selling author Guy Fraser-Sampson based on the immortal characters first created by E.F. Benson.


Perfect reading for followers of Benson’s original novels and sure to be equally loved by P.G. Wodehouse fans, this is a pitch-perfect and deliciously enjoyable social satire of an England long gone but not forgotten.
