I discovered the happy news that there were going to be new paperback editions of some of Nancy Mitford's best loved titles via Mrs Trefusis' Twitter feed- and have just been reminded about the books by India Knight's twitter feed.
I am a devoted admirer of Nancy Mitford's work and hold the first three books, especially The Pursuit of Love, very close to my heart. They have been great friends to me over the years and I look forward to reading the new introductions. I'm particularly excited about Wigs on the Green being re- issued because I have never read it- I have picked up the other more obscure war period Mitford Pigeon Pie at a second hand book shop and I devoured it, though I haven't re- read it in the way I have the others.
