A Busy Day

A Busy Day

by Fanny Burney

A Busy Day is a love story. It is also a witty and well-observed satire on class and greed, from the most popular female writer of her time. The scene is London in the summer of 1800. In the course of just one busy day we are thrust into a world of frustrated love, mistaken identity, social snobbery, and downright vulgar bad manners.
