No Escaping the Mitfords



I’m not a Mitford fan except of Nancy’s books: The Pursuit of Love is always in my top ten. I quite failed to see the charm of the letters (boy, did Craig Brown nail them!) or to find anything at all funny about the terrible, unrepentant Diana. I am amused by the latest newsletter from Heywod Hill though. Deborah, Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, has signed a lot of the new Capuchin editions of Nancy’s books as ‘only the author’s sister’, which is lovely. No need for me to buy the new books as I have multiple copies already.

There’s also apparently a Nancy exhibition. Now, I’d like to look at the original manuscript of The Pursuit of Love but, if I’m honest, I would much rather see a display of the wonderful clothes she bought in Paris!
