A Reader's Guide to Nancy Mitford & ‘Love in a Cold Climate’
Come with me to Mitford-land and the amusing, entertaining and madly eccentric world of Love in a Cold Climate. There you will find many weird and wonderful ways of loving, you will experience country house parties, learn about snobbery, and revel in gossipy and often bitchy conversations about a memorable, but rarely likeable, collection of people.
I am a huge Mitford fan – their lives, their novels, their letters, all fascinate me. Nancy’s wry, acerbic novels, Jessica’s memoir of their childhood, Debo’s books about Chatsworth and Diana’s autobiography – they are all so wonderfully eccentric and funny. A friend once told me that you could tell everything you needed to know about someone by asking them which Mitford sister was their favourite. I will confess here that mine is Nancy because she was the finest writer of the six sisters – make of that piece of information what you choose.
I find that whenever I give talks about the Mitford Girls, I am not alone in my fascination. The Mitfords continue to draw audiences and readers and to give delight through their extraordinary lives and their hilarious books. I hope you will be one of those who shares my delight in the Mitfords.
