Would you listen to Queen Lucia: The BBC Radio 4 dramatisation again? Why?
I can listen to this again and again. It is very close to the E.F.Benson book. The characters are brought to life in a superb performance.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Lucia, of course. A control freak and social climber she may be, but you have to love her.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?
The portrayal of Olga Braceley was brilliant, just the right balance of artiste and common sense.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When Georgie says to Olga: 'Because...I adore you' - a lovely moment.
Any additional comments?
I have this production on tape and have all but worn it out. I know it inside out. So glad it is available as a an audio-book download.A great introduction to E.F Benson and his 'Lucia' novels.

The cast and dramatisation is pure bliss. I wish every Mapp and/or Lucia book could be produced like this. I think EF Benson suits radio more than TV (apart from the tv series in the early 80s of course- that was gold). I might contact Fred through Abfou and ask if he can write more Lucia novels, modern fiction dare I say it, bores me in general.
