Why we love this
The Blessing by Nancy Mitford. New York: Random House, 1951. First US book club printing. With an excellent jacket design by the irrepressible Cecil Beaton, this is one of Nancy Mitford's more sought-after farces, set chiefly in postwar Paris. When a society beauty makes a hasty marriage to an enigmatic Frenchman, she is whirled into a series of cultural blunders, aided and abetted by her mischievous son, the "blessing" of the title. Jacket shows slight wear.
