The Mitfords had style and presence and were mercilessly gifted. Above all, they were funny--hilariously and mercilessly so. In this wise, evenhanded, and generous book, Mary Lovell captures the vitality and drama of a family that took the twentieth century by storm and became, in some respects, its victims.
