Korte biografie
Nancy Mitford came from an aristocratic background, which she enjoyed satirizing (along with snobs and social climbers). Many of her works were witty and worldly observations of English and French society and manners. She began writing fiction and moved on to biography and history. She was one of the six Mitford sisters, whose lives and activities fascinated the public.
