by Stella Gibbons and Lynne Truss and Roz Chast




Overview -
Quite simply one of the funniest satirical novels of the last century. --Nancy Pearl, NPR's Morning Edition

The deliriously entertaining Cold Comfort Farm is very probably the funniest book ever written (The Sunday Times, London), a hilarious parody of D. H. Lawrence's and Thomas Hardy's earthy, melodramatic novels. When the recently orphaned socialite Flora Poste descends on her relatives at the aptly named Cold Comfort Farm in deepest Sussex, she finds a singularly miserable group in dire need of her particular talent: organization.
