The Horror of Love
Available in Stock
While her sisters Diana and Unity flirted with Fascism, the novelist Nancy Mitford embarked on a passionate affair with Gaston Palewski, a Free French leader who went on to become one of his country's most eminent politicians - and to marry another woman. Was she a deluded lover or a remarkably sophisticated one? This frank, emotionally challenging book sets their relationship against the dramatic background of war, and charts its impact on her enduringly popular novels. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
