Very rewarding read,

This review is from: The Horror of Love: Nancy Mitford and Gaston Palewski in Paris and London (Paperback)
I don't naturally read this sort of biographical literature on the 20th Century. But it's a very good story - not just about two people, their affair and their family - but about the political and historical context of the huge changes that were talking place around them. The history of France in 1938/9 and during the 40's and the aftermath of WWII is particularly interesting and still relevant.Sensitivley written with excellent research and some humour, this is a book for anyone with a curious mind.
