  • Utter, utter bliss

    Daily Mail
  • A dazzling comic delight

    Fiona Wilson, The Times, Saturday Review
  • The story's genius lies in its wicked humour, which remains relentlessly uplifting even as the Blitz begin to smash all the hopes of that pre-war arcadia

    Olivia Laing, The Guardian
  • Too spiky and intelligent, I think, to qualify as an altogether cosy read [...] beneath the brittle surface of Mitford's wit there is something infinitely more melancholy at work - something that is apt to snag you and pull you into its dark undertow when you are least expecting it

    Zoë Heller, The Telegraph
  • Nancy Mitford taught the wonderful truth that laughter can see you through the darkest hours of your life

    Daily Mail
  • The Millennial faint-hearted will be appalled by Mitford's depiction of class and gender. But Mitford's triumph is that, as the Radletts live and laugh and cry, we [cry] with them

    Julie Parsons, The Irish Times
  • In her novels Nancy mastered her life, making everyone who was different or difficult into figures of mirth, moving only among the aristocracy, and infusing the world with a spirit of lazy, delightful romance

    Natasha Walter, The Independent
