The Horror of Love: Nancy Mitford and Gaston Palewski in Paris and London

'“Nancy Mitford was elegant, clever, witty and exceptionally beady-eyed about the world. So why did she have such awful taste in men? This is the subject of the historian Lisa Hilton’s entertainingly caustic The Horror of Love.” —The Sunday Times (London)“Nancy Mitford was an English novelist with a glamour that surpassed even that of her aristocratic sisters. Her lover, Gaston Palewski, was a French politician who featured in disguised form in two of her novels. Mitford fans will love this book, of course, though it says so much more about the compromises and tragedies of love.” —Catholic Herald“Nancy Mitford, aristocrat, author, waspish wit, first laid eyes on Gaston Palewski in 1942 and, for her, it was love at first sight that lasted a lifetime. There is so much charm and drama to Nancy and Gaston’s lives, embroiled as they were in the key events of the twentieth century.” —Sunday Express“The charm of The Horror of Love is its bringing to life the worlds of Nancy Mitford’s novels. Its portrait of upper-class postwar Paris will surely appeal to Mitford fans.” —The Independent (London) '
