Check out this review of the book, First Lady of the Keys, by Lucy Brazier, as featured on Writer Christoph Fischer’s blog
I’ve been following Lucy’s blog for some time and was pleased when I found her stories finally coming together in one novel. At last I got round to read this all in one sitting.
What I found is a truly hilarious novel with often understated humour. It depicts the experiences of the first female porter at Cambridge with excellent anectdotal tales and situational comedy.
The writing style is brilliant and the stories will have you in stitches. Lucy is walking the tightrope between professional and naughty, making for some awesome reading.
At times I felt confused what was real and what was fiction, such is the clever fusion of disguise and tell-all-nature of such ‘confessions’.
On the way you get excellent insights into the campus culture, some history and a profession I knew next to nothing about.
I truly enjoyed this book and just downloaded the next on my kindle.
