Brilliant, stylish, ironic
Brideshead Revisited is also an account of aristocratic life in the 1930s. But whereas Waugh was besotted and romantic about it, Nancy Mitford knew it from inside and is mercilesslly ironic without ever being malicious. She can see the end of the lifestyle she describes so brillantly without any of Waugh's tragic regrets.
It's also nice to come a across a pre 1960 novel that accepts gays.
No, but she is perfect for this book. She also does not use an irritating convention of using a gruff voice for male characters.
I did laugh but found it deeply satisfying.
