Description - Love in a Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford
Love in a Cold Climateis the wickedly funny follow-up toThe Pursuit of Loveand explores the mystery of sexual attraction.
Love in a Cold Climate is the sequel to Nancy Mitford's bestselling novel The Pursuit of Love.
'How lovely - green velvet and silver. I call that a dream, so soft and delicious, too.' She rubbed a fold of the skirt against her cheek. 'Mine's silver lame, it smells like a bird cage when it gets hot but I do love it. Aren't you thankful evening skirts are long again?'
Ah, the dresses! But oh, the monotony of the Season, with its endless run of glittering balls. Even fabulously fashionable Polly Hampton - with her startling good looks and excellent social connections - is beginning to wilt under the glare.
Groomed for the perfect marriage by her mother, fearsome Lady Montdore, Polly instead scandalises society by declaring her love for her uncle 'Boy' Dougdale, the Lecherous Lecturer, and promptly eloping to France. But the consequences of this union no one could quite expect . . .
Love in a Cold Climate is the wickedly funny follow-up to The Pursuit of Love.
'Entirely original, inimitable and irresistible' Philip Hensher, Spectator
