A Class Apart
Lucy Beresford knows her middle-class family thinks she's married beneath her when she gets together with Rob. He's gorgeous, he's thoughtful, he's clever—but he's undeniably working class. Gradually the differences between Rob and Lucy begin to loom large, as they argue over how the house should be decorated, how the children should be educated, and whether the evening meal should be called "dinner" or "tea." In this funny, contentious, and brilliantly observed novel, Diana Appleyard scratches the surface to reveal the petty snobberies that still exist in most of us.
