The Horror of Loveby Lisa Hilton
Synopses & Reviews
Set against the extraordinary backdrop of post-war France, the compelling love story of Nancy Mitford and Free French commander Gaston Palewski was a less than ideal affair. She was one of the twentieth century's most glamorous and popular authors; he was one of the most significant European politicians of the postwar era. He inspired her to write one of the funniest and most poignant and best-loved novels of its era: The Pursuit of Love. She supported him through a tumultuous political career.
Lisa Hilton captures the complexities of their relationship amid some of the most exciting, powerful, and controversial figures of their time in this provocative and emotionally-charged volume.
The scandalous story of Nancy Mitford's torrid love affair with Free French commander Gaston Palewski
