Product description

Review

[Laura Thompson] writes like a dream (Nicholas Lezard)

Thompson, like Mitford, writes in a witty, humorous and touchingly personal manner (Express)

A sparkling and deliciously readable biography (Mail on Sunday)

One of the most insightful biographies I've ever read (Elizabeth Buchan)

Nancy's life was a puzzling set of contradictions, which have been sensitively unravelled by Thompson's detailed research into the life and work of the English novelist... Thompson, like Mitford, writes in a witty, humorous and touchingly personal manner (Daily Express)

Despite Thompson's passionate enthusiasm for Mitford, she offers a balanced and vivacious appraisal of a fascinating if mildly off-putting woman (Observer)

The force of her identification with her subject means that the books and the life's crises are inspected with unprecedented intensity and intelligence (Guardian)

A biography informed by so much love can't be carped at (Independent on Sunday)

Book Description

The first full, new biography of the perenially fascinating Nancy Mitford since 1985
