The sixth and final volume of E.F. Benson's wildly satirical take on the Edwardian English upper class. The books were recently adapted by the BBC into a mini-series starring Sherlock's Mark Gatiss.

When Lucia is elected Mayor, she decides to keep her competition close by naming her Mayoress. Her plan isn't entirely successful, and the two work ceaseless to undercut and one-up each other.

Alcibiades's extraordinary beauty, great wealth, ostentatious vanity, male and female amours, debaucheries, and impious revels earned him notoriety not only in Athens but throughout the Hellenic world.
