The Mitford sisters were the great wits and beauties of their time. Immoderate in their passions for ideas and people, they counted among their diverse friends Adolf Hitler and Queen Elizabeth II, Cecil Beaton and President Kennedy, Evelyn Waugh and Givenchy.

The Mitfords offers an unparalleled look at these privileged siblings through their own unabashed correspondence. Spanning the twentieth century, the magically vivid letters of the legendary Mitfords constitute a superb social and historical chronicle and an intimate portrait of the stormy but enduring relationships between six beautiful, gifted, and radically different women.

Editorial Reviews

“THE MITFORDS could have been an operatic group biography on an epic scale: Instead, thanks to its editor’s taste and discretion, it is chamber music with symphonic longings… an intriguing record of each sister’s personality… all six could write evocatively, even hauntingly.”
