See 2 Critic Reviews



Approaching her subject with wit, perspicacity and huge affection, Laura Thompson, like Mitford, makes her serious points lightly. Eschewing cliches about the eccentricites of the Mitford clan (although nonetheless delving into the forces which politically polarised this family of "contagiously competitive" girls) Thompson analyses the contradictions and complexities at the heart of Nancy Mitford's life and work.
