The novelist Nancy Mitford (1904-1973) was, in the words of her sister Diana Mosley, 'very, very complex'. Drawing on her vast body of letters to family, friends such as Evelyn Waugh, and her great love Gaston Palewski, Laura Thompson's biography brings this fascinating woman vividly to life: one who cherished marriage and family but yearned for writerly solitude; who disliked feminism yet lived a life of emotional and financial independence; and who was quintessentially English yet only blossomed in France.

I felt awfully sad to read how love escaped her in 'real" life, but how positive as well as sharp-witted she remained all her life. Now thanks to Laura Thompson, I am on to the reading pleasure of Ms. Thompson's other subjects.
As an aside,I will add if anyone has read. E. F. Benson's books and enjoyed them, try a Nancy Mitford helping of drollery!
