About the Author

Guy Fraser-Sampson is a well-known best-selling non-fiction author, and a longstanding Mapp and Lucia fan. His first Tilling novel, Major Benjy, was published to much acclaim from Benson devotees, including Gyles Brandreth ("More Mapp and Lucia - what bliss! Major Benjy on the rampage - what joy!") and Tom Holt ("As you read Guy Fraser-Sampson's sinuous narrative and needle-sharp dialogue, Tilling suddenly takes shape all around you - Benson himself would have loved this book, and so will you").

Reviews

Lucia is back! This is a wonderful new adventure for our magnificent heroine, written with all the style and humour of Benson himself. A triumph. Uno, due, tre ... read it! -Alexander McCall Smith; [Praise for 'Major Benjy' by Guy Fraser-Sampson] More Mapp and Lucia - what bliss! Major Benjy on the rampage - what joy! -Gyles Brandreth; [Praise for 'Major Benjy' by Guy Fraser-Sampson] As you read Guy Fraser-Sampson's sinuous narrative and needle-sharp dialogue, Tilling suddenly takes shape all around you ... Benson himself would have loved this book, and so will you. -Tom Holt; An agreeable romp, with at least one treat for the Benson aficionado --The Spectator; Brilliant, quite quite brilliantly wonderful...This is a simply delicious book and I loved every single word...I hope this sells in millions and trillions as it deserves to do so. -Random Jottings; Imbued with all the satire and wit of the originals, spiced up with titbits of real events, this well-written novel will amuse Benson fans and neophytes alike. -Sussex Life; What a delightful, funny, captivating read this book is from start to finish...A really good old fashioned and light-hearted story with endearing characters which will leave you with a smile on your face. -Kath Thornton, lovereading.co.uk; This book was a delight to read, capturing the mood and essence of the Benson originals...I think anyone who enjoyed the original books, or who likes P G Wodehouse, will have fun with this book. -Lindsey Whittle, lovereading.co.uk; I love and adore Major Benjy and (now) Lucia on Holiday by Guy F-S.The reason they are so delicious is that Guy 'gets' the voice of Benson so perfectly. I can honestly say that, while reading Lucia on Holiday, I kept forgetting that it wasn't Benson's pen which had written it - and what higher compliment could possibly be paid? --Stuck In A Book
