The Mitford sisters were the great wits and beauties of their time. Immoderate in their passions for ideas and people, they counted among their diverse friends Adolf Hitler and Queen Elizabeth II, Cecil Beaton and President Kennedy, Evelyn Waugh and Givenchy.

The Mitfords offers an unparalleled look at these privileged siblings through their own unabashed correspondence. Spanning the twentieth century, the magically vivid letters of the legendary Mitfords constitute a superb social and historical chronicle and an intimate portrait of the stormy but enduring relationships between six beautiful, gifted, and radically different women.

Review:

"An engrossing, deeply personal group portrait.Each letter is a thrilling gem unto itself.Marvelous fun." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Compelling.The letters are so affecting that it is difficult to refrain from wanting to get to know the sisters better." -- St. Petersburg Times

"An engrossing, deeply personal group portrait...Each letter is a thrilling gem unto itself...Marvelous fun."--Kirkus Reviews

"A splendid introduction to the eccentric charms of the Mitford world...On my short list of best books of the year."--Newsday

"Funny, loving, sparkly, snarky, heartbreaking, chilling, gossipy, wise....You'll be rewarded with six up-close, personal-and sometimes appalling-takes on the 20th century."--O magazine

"Marvelous...THE MITFORDS is quite simply one of the most sinful guilty pleasures of the season."--Baltimore Sun

"Fascinating...The sisters had the stiff upper lip of their class, and, it must be said, a way with words."--Wall Street Journal

"THE MITFORDS could have been an operatic group biography on an epic scale: Instead, thanks to its editor's taste and discretion, it is chamber music with symphonic longings... an intriguing record of each sister's personality... all six could write evocatively, even hauntingly."--Washington Post Book World

"Peppered with colorful nicknames, filled with love, encouragement, jealousy and gossip, and written primarily to amuse the recipients, the letters testify to the bonds of sisterhood."--Publishers Weekly

"Fascinating...Their irresistible appeal comes from the way they invite us into the close family circle."--New York Times Book Review
