Customer Review

on 4 December 2011
This appalling waste of money is 262 pages long. Lisa Hilton does not begin her pointless 'exploration' of Nancy Mitford's 30 odd year relationship with Gaston Palewski until page 133. There is no structure to this book, the literary style is risible and there are no new insights; just a skewed attempt to make readers believe Nancy had some say in what was a rather sad scenario . There is more detail about M. Palewski's career than might ordinarily appear, but he would be no more than a very minor footnote in a biography of De Gaulle if it were not for his involvement with a Mitford. Selina Hastings' biography of Nancy has all the information contained here, and more. I am taking 'The Horror of Love' to a charity shop tomorrow. Good luck to someone - I wish I hadn't bought it and feel somewhat daft for having done so...
