|This much-loved work was first published by Longmans in September 1932.
Stella Gibbons' original choice of name for the Starkadder family home was Curse God Farm. However, according to her nephew and biographer Reggie Oliver she took up the suggestion of a friend, Elizabeth Coxhead, who knew of a real farm called Cold Comfort in Rogues Lane in the Leicestershire village of Stoke Golding, the Birthplace of the Tudor Dynasty. Presumably folk still visit the farm in order to witness something narsty in the various woodsheds.
