How did I miss this?
How did I miss this????
I would blame NaNoWriMo but it came out in September.
I adore Nancy Mitford. The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate are two of my very favourite books. I’ve re-read them countless times and I just love them to pieces.
So I’m mystified that I missed this re-issuing, and thank you Ann for mentioning it. I’ve never read Wigs on the Green so I can’t recommend it yet. It may be another The Pursuit of Love or it may be a Don’t Tell Alfred (Nancy not at her best).
I do recommend that you buy the The Pursuit of Love though. It follows the fortunes of the wonderful Radlett family who are “always either on a peak of happiness or drowning in black waters of despair they loved or they loathed, they lived in a world of superlatives” The Radletts are based loosely, or maybe not so loosely on Nancy’s family.
Here’s it’s nice new cover
Here’s my edition. I think this looks very like Linda!
And here’s the old Penguin cover that I rather like.
Any favourites and any other Nancy fans out there?
