Read full description of the books:



Nancy Mitford was the eldest and most famous of the Mitfords. However, before she shot to fame as a novelist with The Pursuit of Love, she had gathered a huge following with articles pouring drops of acid on the pretensions of the aristocracy. A relentless tease, she wrote brilliant sharp-tongued articles, first for the Lady Magazine owned by her uncle, and then soon thereafter for House & Garden, Vogue, The Times, Sunday Times, New Statesman, Spectator, New York Review of Books and the Atlantic Monthly in the US, as well as other publications. A first small selection of her articles appeared in The Water Beetle (1962), followed in 1986 by a larger selection of recent writings up to 1968. collection of Nancy Mitford's entire career. It aims to establish her as one of the first female journalists with a superb command of stylish invective whose anarchic streak has made her writings pass the test of time with effortless ease.

Read information about the author

Ebook A Talent To Annoy read Online! Nancy Mitford, CBE (28 November 1904, London – 30 June 1973, Versailles), styled The Hon. Nancy Mitford before her marriage and The Hon. Mrs Peter Rodd thereafter, was an English novelist and biographer, one of the Bright Young People on the London social scene in the inter-war years. She was born at 1 Graham Street (now Graham Place) in Belgravia, London, the eldest daughter of Lord Redesdale and was brought up at Asthall Manor in Oxfordshire. She was the eldest of the six controversial Mitford sisters.

She is best remembered for her series of novels about upper-class life in England and France, particularly the four published after 1945; but she also wrote four well-received, well-researched popular biographies (of Louis XIV, Madame de Pompadour, Voltaire, and Frederick the Great). She was one of the noted Mitford sisters and the first to publicise the extraordinary family life of her very English and very eccentric family, giving rise to a "Mitford industry" which continues.
