there've always been Starkadders at Cold Comfort Farm

because I know everyone has scads of free time, you should read if you already haven't Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons. I absolutely love the movie with Kate Beckinsale but I hear the book is much better.surprise,right? anyway, the reason I'm pointing out this oldie but goodie (it was pubbed in 1932) is because of her characterization. she invents some of the most memorable and theatrical characters...and I LOVE that. I love characters who are straight out of a B movie and this book is chock full of them.
this little clip is just proof of the types you'll see in the movie so you know Gibbons' characters in the book are rich. another thing about this is it feeds my anglophile inner self. hell, it's an outer self because I freely admit I love the Brits and all things British. so GO NOW AND ORDER THIS BOOK or check it out of the library. but read this gem. end of little of lady like rant about old books.
