    In this collection of occasional writings, the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire and former chatelaine of Chatsworth offers her refreshing observations on topics ranging from her Mitford childhood to the need, as one grows older, to keep a toaster and kettle in the bedroom; and from being painted by Lucian Freud to farming. This volume comprises Counting My Chickens (2001), with its introduction by Tom Stoppard, Home to Roost (2009), introduced by Alan Bennett, and three 'Newly Laid' pieces. Slightly off-mint.
