Deborah Devonshire

From Times Online:
The youngest and only surviving of the Mitford sisters is about to publish her second book of essays — yet she never went to school.

Her life has straddled a gilded age; by her teens she already knew Evelyn Waugh, Harold Acton and John Betjeman. “I think your generation are more dull, but we all think our contemporaries are the most glittering.”

Home to Roost by Deborah Devonshire is published by John Murray, May 14.
