Reviews

  • Beautifully evokes the period

    Independent on Sunday
  • Delightfully gossipy...irreverently lifts the skirts of the dolls of Versailles and rummages about underneath, exposing one gem of irresistible detail after another...A glorious tribute to a glorious age

    Irish Times
  • La Mitford plonks the reader amid the seething snobbery and maniacal struggle for High Life that was the Sun King's regime... brilliantly acerbic

    Observer
  • Her style is skilfully succinct; and her wit proceeds from uncommon shrewdness...readers will wish her her book were twice as long

    Sunday Times
  • Highly entertaining...written with her accustomed dash and gaiety, in a manner which frequently suggests one of her delightful novels... Because Miss Mitford is so at home in Versailles, she confers the same feeling of being at home upon a sympathetic modern reader

    Sunday Telegraph
