This is an auction for THE MITFORD GIRLS: THE BIOGRAPHY OF AN EXTRAORDINARY FAMILY, by Mary S Lovell.

Amazon.com review:

"In The Mitford Girls, Mary S Lovell cordially brings together the varied personalities of an eccentric British blue-eyed sisterhood that spanned the 20th century. Born of "minor provincial aristocracy", the six Mitford sisters and one brother came to epitomise the Bright Young Thing generation of London society, hosting the extravagant, giddy parties lampooned by Evelyn Waugh. Nancy, the literary dry wit, was herself to write several successful novels, notably Love in a Cold Climate and The Pursuit of Love. Notoriety, though, came elsewhere. Diana, beautiful and strong-willed, left Bryan Guinness the month Hitler came to power in Germany to be with dashing British fascist leader Oswald Mosley, whom she married. A meeting of hearts and beliefs, they stayed together through internment during the war, and the years after. Tragedy came with the manic public fervour of Unity for Hitler and the Nazi Party. She met the Fhrer on 140 occasions between 1935 and 1939, achieving a rare intimacy, but when war broke out she shot herself in a bid to end her life, which left her disabled. Decca wrote The American Way of Death and Hons and Rebels, the latter every bit as witty as Nancy's work. The diverse energies of this multi-plumed brood, who in adult life were rarely in the same room, make them hard to contain in one book, and perhaps require more distance to do justice to the themes, and disparities, of their extraordinary lives."
