The Pursuit of Laughter : Essays, Reviews and Diary, Paperback / softback Book

The Pursuit of Laughter : Essays, Reviews and Diary Paperback / softback

Edited by Martin Rynja

Paperback / softback


Like her five literary sisters, Diana Mitford has written widely not only on her own fascinating, controversial life, but has recorded her intimately-placed observations of friends who also happened to have been leading political and social figures of the day.

The majority of these scintillating articles circulated privately to a small group of people are published for the very first time in this volume.
