How and Why They Lived That Way: Books and DVDs about 19th- & 20th-Century British Society

 
 

The Crawley family's impeccably ordered lifestyle in Downton Abbey has sparked much curiosity about the lavish social rituals and practical underpinnings of life in a grand English country home. Readers who want to know what it felt like to be an American heiress rubbing elbows with hard-up aristocrats, when a lord might confide in his butler, whether asparagus should be eaten with hands or fork, or how much it cost to employ all those footmen will find plenty of answers in our selection of classic and newly reissued memoirs. Period fiction and mysteries by first-rate writers, as well as related TV dramas and historical series, also illuminate these lives and times from fresh angles.
