Customer Review

on 29 February 2012
It took as far as chapter twelve for Nancy Mitford and Palewski to get together and I was so disappointed . I feel the writer used a great deal of padding beforehand to get to what I wanted to know about this romance and then it revealed very little more than other biograhphies of Nancy Mitford had already told us. I was not impressed with her description of the character of Nancy Mitford either, comparing her to Marmite: you either liked her or not!

I feel she did not have enough research material to make this a really interesting account of the romance. Also I was not convinced by her character analyses of Palewski and why Mitford found him so spellbinding. On the one hand we are told she disliked Americans because they were so immature, yet she was obsessed with someone who's maturity could be questioned throughout the book. I felt after reading this book no different to when I read her earlier biography and that is how could such a talented writer like Nancy Mitford be obsessed with such a pathetic bore. I had hoped to be enlightened about the affair and learn something new, but sadly that was not the case
