Hardcover in dust jacket. Fine in Fine jacket. 191 pages; illustrated.
A collection of previously unpublished correspondence with Heywood Hill (in whose storied bookshop she had worked) is filled with gossip about life in Paris, tales of Nancy Mitford's writing life, and her own personal requests for books. Hill in turn provides news of customers - many among the elite of post-war London - and reports on how Mitford's books were being received in Great Britain.
