Vachell, Horace Annesley   
(2 of 2 for author by title)
Fishpingle: A Romance of the Countryside
Published:   1920
Publisher:George H. Doran Company
Tags:fiction, romance

A pleasing novel of English country life. Lady Selina, a sweet but mediæval English aristocrat, whitewashes her dependents’ pretty but unsanitary cottages and ignores her unwittlingly criminal neglect. Doles and port wine and patronizing condescension represent to her the duty of her class to their class. There is an amusing contrast in the lively Tiddy, the capable and slangy daughter of a nouveau riche baronet, and there is a love story of more than ordinary interest. The novel is capital for both its entertainment and its picture of old and new English society.—The Outlook, June 9, 1920. [Suggest a different description.]
