Nancy Mitford and Evelyn Waugh were among the wittiest and most gifted writers of their generation. Their deep friendship gave rise to over five hundred wonderful letters which Charlotte Mosley has collected here for the first time in their entirety. Both a personal record of their acquaintance and a revealing insight into their famous circle, these letters are a testament to their enduring talents. They began corresponding regularly at the end of the Second World War, a critical point in both their lives, and continued to write to each other until Evelyn's death in 1966.
A wonderfully entertaining collection, 'The Letters of Nancy Mitford and Evelyn Waugh' is a sparkling record of a unique friendship and a fount of amusement for any admirer of English prose and wit.
