David of King's is E.F. Benson's witty and well-observed novel of varsity life set at King's College, Cambridge during the early part of the 20th century. The novel was first published in 1924 when Benson was in his later fifties. The work was penned by Benson because of the success he had enjoyed with David Blaize, his schoolboy novel, first published in 1916. David of King's takes off where David Blaize ends. The novel covers three years of Blaize's undergraduate life. Enjoy more tales of Blaize and his different friendships with Maddox and Bags as they live and learn together as King'smen. David of King's is, above all, a "jolly enjoyable" read. Benson tells an absorbing story and he draws the reader into the cultural and social world of Blaize at King's College and more generally of Cambridge University. His stories of Blaize's encounters with colourful and eccentric dons -- A.G. and Mr. Crowfoot -- based on the real life characters O.B. (Oscar Browning) and Mr. J.E. Nixon -- are absolute gems of affectionate humour and should not be missed

Though British writer E.F. Benson is best remembered today as the creator of the Mapp and Lucia series of wickedly funny social satires, the prolific author also made several forays into mysteries.

11 editions published between 1992 and 2002 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
United by a perfect chilling atmosphere and graceful literary style, these ghostly stories range from the horror of vampires, homicidal ghosts and monstrous spectral worms and slugs (appearing in the classic "Negotium Perambulans" and "And No Bird Sings") to the satire of humorous tales that poke fun at charlatan mediums and fake seances ("Spinach" and "Mr Tilly's Seance"). This new edition brings together E.F. Benson's greatest stories, making this the one book that no fan of Benson's or of things spectral can afford to miss
