Reviews

Utter, utter bliss * Daily Mail *
A dazzling comic delight. * Fiona Wilson, The Times, Saturday Review *
The story's genius lies in its wicked humour, which remains relentlessly uplifting even as the Blitz begin to smash all the hopes of that pre-war arcadia * Olivia Laing, The Guardian *
too spiky and intelligent, I think, to qualify as an altogether cosy read [...] beneath the brittle surface of Mitford's wit there is something infinitely more melancholy at work - something that is apt to snag you and pull you into its dark undertow when you are least expecting it * Zoe Heller, The Telegraph *
Nancy Mitford taught the wonderful truth that laughter can see you through the darkest hours of your life * Daily Mail *
The Millennial faint-hearted will be appalled by Mitford's depiction of class and gender. But Mitford's triumph is that, as the Radletts live and laugh and cry, we [cry] with them * Julie Parsons, The Irish Times *
In her novels Nancy mastered her life, making everyone who was different or difficult into figures of mirth, moving only among the aristocracy, and infusing the world with a spirit of lazy, delightful romance * Natasha Walter, The Independent *
Utter, utter bliss * Daily Mail *

A dazzling comic delight.
* Fiona Wilson, The Times, Saturday Review *
