The Mitfords: the gift that keeps on giving

Huge and lovely audience for an event about the Mitfords at Cheltenham Literary Festival in October, where I was delighted to be part of a panel including Juanita Coulson, literary editor of The Lady, and Ben Treuhaft, the son of Jessica Mitford.

A few days later was at Blenheim Literature Festival talking about Nancy Mitford with Lydia Slater, deputy editor of Harper’s Bazaar and Town and Country – great fun.

The latest issue of the ever-beautiful T and C is out, with a little piece from me about the summer Season.
