In her most successful novel, Nancy Mitford uses real-life elements from her extravagant and famous family in order to weave her story. We become acquainted with the different members of the Radlett family: the ill-tempered father Uncle Matthew, the absent and devout mother Sadie, and the seven children who, along with their cousin Fanny, make up a bizarre and entertaining family. But the real focus of this story is young Linda Radlett and her incessant quest for love. Throughout these pages we witness her conquests and meet the men in whom she believes to have found true love. This work showcases the author s famous satirical genius and her extraordinary ability to reconstruct the environment, lifestyle, and people of the British aristocracy. This is a smart and entertaining book that, in addition to being a vibrant and biting novel, is also a true slice of life."En su novela de mayor exito Nancy Mitford utiliza elementos reales de su extravagante y famosa familia para construir su relato. Ante nuestros ojos van desfilando los distintos miembros de la familia Radlett: el malhumorado padre Tio Matthew, la ausente y devota madre Sadie, y los siete hijos que junto a su prima Fanny forman una estrafalaria y divertidisima familia. Pero el autentico centro de esta historia es la joven Linda Radlett y su constante busqueda del amor. A traves de estas paginas la acompanaremos en sus azarosas conquistas y conoceremos a los distintos hombres en los que creyo encontrar el amor. El texto despliega el famoso ingenio satirico y la extraordinaria capacidad de la autora para reconstruir el ambiente, la vida y las personas en los circulos aristocraticos ingleses. Este es un libro inteligente y divertido, que, ademas de ser una novela vibrante y mordaz, es tambien un verdadero trozo de vida.""
