Sunday Express

«Books of the Year 2009, 'an appealing blend of incisive observation and unfailing humour'»

Good Book Guide

«'A collection of the youngest Mitford sister's journalism, showing her customary wit and eye for the absurd'»

Observer

«'Her latest has an introduction from Alan Bennett, so you get two national treasures for the price of one ... she's a wonderful writer'»

Reader's Digest

«'Behind the wit and quips, there is something else stronger and more rigorous ... a small, cumulative but revealing self-portrait ...this is a book about manners, how to behave, and being funny as a form of civilisation'»

Spectator

«'This prolific writer needs no introduction ... this small book is a brilliant selection. I read it with such enjoyment, sometimes laughing aloud, sometimes pausing to think "Goodness! How right she is". It is remarkable not only for its style but also for the grear clarity, sympathy , conciseness and humour ... brilliant'»

Country Life

«'This collection of wit and wisdom from the Duchess of Devonshire (and last surviving Mitford girl) just dances off the page ... funny and insightful ... whatever te subject, playfulness and a love of life spill from the page, and there are no words wasted. Perfect for dipping into, this book is bound to touch and tickle anyone's heart'»

Waterstones Books Quarterly

«'Affectionate, shrewd and uproariously funny'»

Western Morning News

«'The Book is peppered with humorous and affectionate tales of the country, in addition to providing a rare insight into some of the more momentous world events of the last century...endearing...candid and down to earth style...an intriguing window into the key events of a bygone era...all delivered as if to a friend, with a high degree of honesty and humour'»

Derby Evening Telegraph, Lynne Brighouse

«'The dowager duchess treats us to more of her musings...her profile is high following the success of In Tearing Haste'»
