Nancy Mitford


I can't mention Nancy Mitford and not show the great vintage Penguin editions of her books that I found in used-books stores around Paris - they can't be compared to the super corny covers of her recently-reissued novels. Want to know more about Nancy Mitford? Read the chapter I wrote about her in an Anthology of Birtish Literature, to be published by the Editions Ellipses some time in 2008. Or just read 'The Pursuit of Love', a great place to start.
