The Pursuit of Love: With Love in a Cold Climate and The Blessing

Available

Description

'A masterpiece ... The Pursuit of Love is one of the funniest books ever written' India Knight, The Times

Nancy Mitford's brilliantly witty, irreverent stories of the upper classes in pre-war London and Paris conjure up a world of glamour, gossip and decadence. In The Pursuit of Love , Love in a Cold Climate and The Blessing , her extraordinary heroines deal with armies of eccentric relatives, the excitement of love and passion, and the thrills of the social Season. But beneath the perfectly timed comic dialogue, these novels are also bittersweet reminders of the brevity of life and love.

With an Introduction by Philip Hensher

'A kind of perfection' Olivia Laing, Guardian

'Peerless ... beneath the surface of Mitford's wit, there is something infinitely more melancholy at work' Zoe Heller
