This review is a long time coming, because this book was a long time reading!
This is a biography of Nancy Mitford, the eldest of the six notorious Mitford sisters. As an American, I didn’t know anything about them, and as somebody with an interest in the inter-war years, I was fascinated to learn. I started by brushing up on their respective Wikipedia pages, just to give myself a grounding, then I dove in, eager to learn more. That eagerness did not last.
