I love The Mitfords. Have read so much about them I feel I know them as personal friends. I love this "biography" by Harold Acton who was a true friend to them throughout their lives. It is not truly a biography but more letters between them so very much in Nancy's own words by someone who loved her. Approved by and contributed to by Debo, Diana and Pam a lovely book. I borrowed it first but had to buy it ( )

Anything by or about the Mitfords is delightful to read(for me, that is). This is not the authoritative book on Nancy Mitford but it's written by a personal friend so it includes lots of juicy little tid bits. ( )
