The Mitfords: Letters Between Six Sisters (2007)
No descriptions found.
"Less inhibited than their memoirs and more intimate than the biographies written about them, this selection of unpublished letters between the six legendary Mitford sisters is, alive with wit, hilarity, passion and heartbreak. The letters constitute not just an idiosyncratic social and historical chronicle of the 20th century, they also chart the stormy but enduring relationship between six beautiful and gifted women who incarnated the same indomitable spirit yet carved out starkly different roles and identities for themselves." "Nancy, the scalding wit who transferred her family life into bestselling novels; Pamela, who craved nothing more than a quiet country life; Diana, the fascist jailed with her husband, Oswald Mosley, during the Second World War; Unity, whose obsession with Hitler led to her attempted suicide; Jessica, the runaway communist and fighter for social change; and Deborah, the genial socialite who found herself Duchess of Devonshire." "Writing to one another to confide, commiserate, tease, rage and gossip, the sisters set out, above all, to amuse, and never lost the ability to laugh at themselves. A correspondence of this scope is rare, for it to be penned by six such born storytellers makes it unique."--BOOK JACKET.
