9780099528876: Madame de Pompadour (Vintage Classics)

When Jeanne-Antoinette was nine, she was told by a fortune teller that she would one day become the mistress of the handsome young Louix XV - from that day she was groomed to become 'a morsel fit for a King'. Nancy Mitford lovingly tells the story of how the little girl rose, against a backdrop of savage social-climbing, intrigue, excess and high drama, to become the most powerful women of the eighteenth century French court, Le Pompadour.

Product Description:

Madame De Pompadour

Review:

"My favourite biography is Nancy Mitford's Madame de Pompadour - a famous 18th-century French beauty who became Louis XV's mistress. The secret of a good biography is not just to tell the person's story but to create the world in which they lived." (Julian Fellowes Daily Express)

"Mitford brings warmth to everything she touches, and her biography of Madame de Pompadour is testimony to that" (Justine Picardie Sunday Telegraph)

"Reads as if an enchantingly clever woman was pouring out the story to me on the telephone" (Raymond Mortimer)

"Nancy Mitford excels in depicting both the brilliant romantic showcase and the recessed world of power... No historian writing in English has given a better pen-picture of Versailles in its heyday" ( Time)

"Incontestably her best book, Madame de Pompadour is beautifully written in a rapid, nervous, gay and enthusiastic manner which carries the reader through from first page to last" (Cyril Connolly Sunday Times)
