About this book
Acton was one of Mitford's closest friends, and offers a portrait of what she was really like, based on letters and other materials. Full of wit, gossip and spite, he offers a fresh take on the popular novelist. With a foreword by Diana Mosley. 'It makes you weep with laughter' India Knight, "London Review Of Books"
From the letters and materials Nancy Mitford had been gathering for her autobiography, this work draws a portrait of the author of "Love in a Cold Climate" and "The Pursuit of Love", who was so unhappy in love herself.
