Snobs is the story of Edith Lavery, the attractive only child of a comfortably-off accountant, who earns a living answering the telephone in a Chelsea estate. Attending Royal Ascot, she meets Charles Broughton, who as Earl Broughton and heir to the Marquess of Uckfield, is a gossip-column favourite. He proposes, she accepts, and here is the crux of the story: is she really in love with Charles or with his title and all that goes with it?The story is narrated by a journeyman character actor who comfortably moves among the upper and middle classes, while observing their foibles.

Excellent read. Thoroughly engrossing, fun, and educational. I got very attached to the characters, even the rather turgid ones, and I can't wait to read Past Imperfect. Julian Fellowes knows his aristocratic onions
