Cold Comfort Farm
Winner of the 1933 Femina Vie Heureuse Prize, 'Cold Comfort Farm' is a wickedly funny portrait of British rural life in the 1930?s. Flora Poste, a recently orphaned socialite, moves in with her country relatives, the gloomy Starkadders of 'Cold Comfort Farm,' and becomes enmeshed in a web of violent emotions, despair, and scheming, until Flora manages to set things right. A BBC Radio Presents dramatization featuring stirring music and sound effects.
