Nancy Mitford’s writing career took off in the 1920s and 30s as she satirized the English country society of her youth. These two witty novels based on her own eccentric, interesting, controversial family depict the Radlett sisters and attendant relatives through their childhood adventures— and adult misadventures in love. The cozy English country setting and quirky characters make these novels fun choices for fans of Evelyn Waugh or Kate Atkinson.
