The roaring 20s are the perfect time to be tall, slim, and wealthy. Felicity Fortnum is all three, but unfortunately in addition to being well-heeled she is also decidedly well-bosomed, which makes her stand out in London society, quite literally. But she's not going to let her soccer-ball-sized appendages spoil her fun. In fact, with the help of the dependable and resourceful family valet Jennings, she's going to do everything she can to make big bosoms fashionable again! In this first story, Felicity's boobies acquire new nicknames, Jennings lends a hand (or two) at bathtime, and a plot to thwart a Wagnerian operatic production by means of gratuitous topless nudity goes spectacularly awry. Tally-ho!

Felicity Fortnum is, without doubt, Lesley Finch's finest character to date.
Not only does she possess the MOST immense "boobies" but she takes an absolute delight in showing them off at any opportunity and in receiving well-deserved praise for her tremendous assets.
The two (so far) Fortnum stories are much more light hearted than Finch's other tales and, based in the 1920s, are written in an almost PG Wodehouse / Jeeves & Wooster style with Felicity in the Bertie Wooster role & her manservant Jennings taking that of Jeeves.
They're both great fun with the first seeing Felicity take part in an opera as part of a plan to get revenge on those who slighted her magnificent bosom. And the rotters deserve everything Felicity has planned for them! :-)
Finally Felicity is brought to full, magnificent life by the faultless tones of Ms Posey Clifford, now a well-deserved veteran of many Lesley Finch tales.
Thanks to both for a wonderful hour and 23 minutes!

An absolute delight for lovers of breasts & opera!
What a lot of fun it was listening to this story by Lesley Finch. I suppose that the 1920s were not the best time for a fashionable young woman to be sporting an impressively large pair of bosoms, but Felicity Fortnum certainly makes the best of them. This was a well written and just plain fun story from beginning to end.
The story was complemented perfectly by the narration by Posey Clifford. Her performance was perfect for this story, and her various voices, appropriately tongue-in-check, were a joy to listen to, Don't worry, Posey doesn't actually sing any Wagner, it's all just wonderful narration.
Very much the fun listen, I shall sample more of Ms Finch's work. You may want to as well.
