Christmas Pudding (Hardback)Nancy Mitford (author)
- Not available
A fun and festive tale by the author of The Pursuit of Love
The formidable fox-hunting obsessed Lady Bobbin has put together a Christmas house party at Compton Bobbin, including her rebellious daughter Philadelphia, the girl's pompous suitor, a couple of children obsessed with newspaper death notices, and an aspiring writer whose deadly (in more ways than one) serious first novel has been acclaimed as the funniest book of the year, to his utter dismay.
And then there is beautiful ex courtesan Amabelle Fortescue and her group of guests staying in a nearby cottage ...
As the house parties start to unravel, so the jokes increase: this is Nancy Mitford's second novel and one of her earliest forays into the world of the "Bright Young Things".
