Published as "The Mitford Girls: The Biography of an Extraordinary Family" in the UK. No spine creases, covers creased and a bit edgeworn, several page corners creased; pages clean, none loose. ; 'They were beautiful, brilliant, gloriously eccentric, and their humor was legendary. Everything was perfect, except for their politics. This is the story of a close, loving family splintered by the violent ideologies of Europe between the wars. Jessica was a Communist; Debo became the Duchess of Devonshire; Nancy, the eldest, was one of the best-selling novelists of her day; the ethereally beautiful Diana, married to the Fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley and imprisoned without trial through most of World War II, was the most hated woman in England; Unity Valkyrie Mitford, born in the mining town of Swastika, Alaska, would become obsessed with Adolf Hitler, whom she met on at least 140 occasions. When war was declared between England and Germany, she shot herself in the head. The Mitfords had style, presence, and were extremely gifted: four would go on to write best-selling books. Above all, they were funny—hilariously and often mercilessly so.'; Image is actual copy on offer.
