Reseña del editor:

This brilliantly funny novel revisits some of the characters from Nancy Mitford’s earlier stories including Fanny, who is married to bumbling, absent-minded Oxford don, Alfred.

Fanny is content in her role as a tweedy housewife with ‘ghastly’ clothes, but her life changes overnight when Alfred is appointed English Ambassador to Paris. Suddenly she is mixing with royalty and Rothschilds, hosting cocktail parties and having details of her every move and outfit printed in the papers. As if that wasn’t all more than enough to contend with, she also finds herself dealing with an aristocratic squatter, organising her friends’ love lives and keeping track of her maverick sons. All she needs now is a diplomatic crisis...

Biografía del autor:

Nancy Mitford (1904-1973) was born in London, the eldest child of the second Baron Redesdale. Her childhood in a large remote country house with her five sisters and one brother is recounted in the early chapters of The Pursuit of Love (1945), which according to the author, is largely autobiographical.

After the war she moved, with her husband, to Paris where she lived for the rest of her life. She followed the success of The Pursuit of Love with Love in a Cold Climate (1949) The Blessing (1951) and Don't Tell Alfred (1960), published together in Penguin as The Nancy Mitford Omnibus. She also wrote four works of biography; Madame de Pompadour, first published to great acclaim in 1954, Voltaire in Love, The Sun King and Frederick the Great.
