Read full description of the books:



Chronique brillante, spirituelle et gaie - émouvante aussi - de l'aristocratie anglaise de l'immédiat avant-guerre, La Poursuite de l'amour forme, avec L'Amour dans un climat froid un diptyque qui valut à Nancy Mitford (1904-1973) non seulement la faveur d'un large public (La poursuite de l'amour de vendit en 1945 à plus d'un million d'exemplaires), mais aussi l'admiration profonde d'un Evelyn Waugh comme d'un Henry Green.

Deux jeunes femmes à la poursuite de l'amour, tel est le sujet définitivement intemporel de ce roman. Elles sont cousines germaines et s'aiment tendrement. Autant Fanny se montre prudente et raisonnable dans cette quête, autant Linda, romanesque et sans frein, risque son va - tout chaque fois qu'elle s'éprend d'un homme ! La morale de l'histoire est tirée par Lord Merlin pour qui l'on se trompe toujours quand on est jeune : « L'amour, c'est pour les grandes personnes. » Avec ses excentriques, ses belles, ses châteaux et sa campagne - bref tout ce qui fait le charme pas toujours discret mais éternel, de la verte Albion - l'inoubliable fresque des Radlett et des Montdore compte au rang des joyaux de l'humour anglais.

Read information about the author

Ebook La poursuite de l'amour read Online! Nancy Mitford, CBE (28 November 1904, London – 30 June 1973, Versailles), styled The Hon. Nancy Mitford before her marriage and The Hon. Mrs Peter Rodd thereafter, was an English novelist and biographer, one of the Bright Young People on the London social scene in the inter-war years. She was born at 1 Graham Street (now Graham Place) in Belgravia, London, the eldest daughter of Lord Redesdale and was brought up at Asthall Manor in Oxfordshire. She was the eldest of the six controversial Mitford sisters.

She is best remembered for her series of novels about upper-class life in England and France, particularly the four published after 1945; but she also wrote four well-received, well-researched popular biographies (of Louis XIV, Madame de Pompadour, Voltaire, and Frederick the Great). She was one of the noted Mitford sisters and the first to publicise the extraordinary family life of her very English and very eccentric family, giving rise to a "Mitford industry" which continues.
