Outrageously pretentious, hypocritical and snobbish, Queen Lucia, ‘as through correct divine’ ideas over the toy nation of ‘Riseholme’ in response to the Cotswold village of Broadway. Her long-suffering husband Pepino is ‘her prince-consort’, the outrageously camp Georgie is her ‘gentleman-in-waiting’, the village eco-friendly is her ‘parliament’, and her topics, corresponding to Daisy Quantock, are hapless would-be ‘Bolsheviks’.

Carabine additionally concentrates at the novels’ anxious, bitchy, ‘camp’ humour every time ‘that horrid factor which Freud calls sex’ is raised.
