The Caravaners

Elizabeth von Arnim’s The Caravaners is a pin-sharp satire on narcissism and self-delusion. A Prussian baron decides to holiday in England, crossing the Kent and Sussex Weald as part of a convoy of horse-drawn tourist caravans; but he has not anticipated the effect of the holiday on his long-suffering wife Edelgard, or on his own militaristic and chauvinist sensibilities. Part devastating character study, part unusual travelogue and part autobiography, The Caravaners is one of von Arnim’s funniest novels.
