Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons
Trade paperback format. Highly recommended for those who want a laugh but aren't keen on fluffy books. This is a zippy, quirky little delight, and a personal favorite.
Introduction by Lynne Truss. Fabulous wraparound cover illustration by Roz Chast!
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.
