Summary A look at how the perennially popular Mitford girls would cope with modern life, with rare and unpublished images courtesy of the Mary Evans Picture Library, and extracts from archived interviews previously unused Nancy Mitford was the ultimate tease, and her talent for mockery reformed the publishing industry in the 1930s and 1940s. Indeed, the Mitford girls' popularity provoked Jessica to label it "The Mitford Industry." All six sisters were blessed with beauty, wit, and talent, and although they were each individual they exploited these attributes to the best of their abilities, and serious matters were not excluded from mockery. Laughter was their key to getting through difficult times, and their life experiences, although sometimes maddening, are a lesson to all. So how would the Mitford girls cope with the pressures and turmoil of modern life? Whether it is Pamela's guide to throwing a jubilee party, the Mitford guide to shopping, or Diana's tips on how to stay young, this quirky and fact-filled book answers that question and many more.
