Those Mitford Girls!

The aristocratic Mitford sisters were writers and socialites, biographers and essayists.

Jessica, who wrote Hons and Rebels and The American Way of Death, was a communist and human rights activist. Unity sympathised with the Nazis and worshipped Hitler. Nancy’s Love in a Cold Climate characters had a reckless upper-class Bohemianism and were determined to find life amusing at all costs, and Diana became the most hated woman in Britain during World War II.

Susannah Fullerton looks at the lives and works of these unconventional sisters.
