Review:

"It is written with all the author's skill, is really hard to put down once its rhythm and energy take hold, and yet imparts an astounding quantity of information." "--Guardian"" " "Mitford's felicity lies in capturing the spirit of a society and an age." --"The Times Literary Supplement ""Nancy Mitford seems to have brought a new talent to the study of history: that of the sophisticated, worldly wise observer, who is able to penetrate old archives with a fresh eye for qualities in the dead." --Louis Auchincloss, "The New York Times Book Review" "Her style is skillfully succinct . . . and her wit proceeds from uncommon shrewdness." --"Sunday Times"" " "Apart from Miss Mitford's special interests in the fun and fashion department, one may admire her most for her power to condense and explain the most complicated events." --"The New Statesman"

Book Description:
