Publisher's Summary

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

Great book to listen to while out walking. It kept my interest from start to finish. Nothing too earth shattering by way of story but it’s full of character and I loved the narration. Really enjoyable.
