Read full description of the books:
Face it, Nancy Mitford was often not a very nice person but her letters are so fun, I'd have tried to befriend her just to get her to write to me. I became interested in the Mitfords with a BBC dramatization of 'Love in a Cold Climate' which led to Nancy Mitford's books which led to her letters and those of her sisters... I can't imagine just coming to this book cold, without some previous acquaintance.
But I've had this book for years, in HARDCOVER no less, and still love to pick it up and open to any page. It was difficult the first time with all the footnotes (though they are fascinating too - who knew these people were divorcing and marrying each other with such frequency?) but it's still fun, and now I just skip them.
If you're interested in the Mitfords at all, this is a great read. But then, if you're interested in the Mitfords at all, you've probably already read it.

Read information about the authorNancy Mitford, CBE (28 November 1904, London – 30 June 1973, Versailles), styled The Hon. Nancy Mitford before her marriage and The Hon. Mrs Peter Rodd thereafter, was an English novelist and biographer, one of the Bright Young People on the London social scene in the inter-war years. She was born at 1 Graham Street (now Graham Place) in Belgravia, London, the eldest daughter of Lord Redesdale and was brought up at Asthall Manor in Oxfordshire. She was the eldest of the six controversial Mitford sisters.
She is best remembered for her series of novels about upper-class life in England and France, particularly the four published after 1945; but she also wrote four well-received, well-researched popular biographies (of Louis XIV, Madame de Pompadour, Voltaire, and Frederick the Great). She was one of the noted Mitford sisters and the first to publicise the extraordinary family life of her very English and very eccentric family, giving rise to a "Mitford industry" which continues.
