2014 book 32

Nancy Mitford's The Pursuit of Love
Sometimes you just want to read a hilarious mostly-autobiographical novel about horrible upper-class British people. And obviously no one does that better than Nancy Mitford. I once saw an edition with this with a preface by her sister, Jessica, straight up saying which Mitford was which character. And it was wonderfully mean, too! No one is more charming and vile than the Mitfords. Anyway, life and love and eccentric relatives abound here, and it is just as silly and satisfying and slightly sad as I remembered. B+.
