Overview

In her most successful novel, Nancy Mitford uses real-life elements from her extravagant and famous family in order to weave her story. We become acquainted with the different members of the Radlett family: the ill-tempered father Uncle Matthew, the absent and devout mother Sadie, and the seven children who, along with their cousin Fanny, make up a bizarre and entertaining family. But the real focus of this story is young Linda Radlett and her incessant quest for love. Throughout these pages we witness her conquests and meet the men in whom she believes to have found true love. This work showcases the author’s famous satirical genius and her extraordinary ability to reconstruct the environment, lifestyle, and people of the British aristocracy. This is a smart and entertaining book that, in addition to being a vibrant and biting novel, is also a true slice of life.

En su novela de mayor éxito Nancy Mitford utiliza elementos reales de su extravagante y famosa familia para construir su relato. Ante nuestros ojos van desfilando los distintos miembros de la familia Radlett: el malhumorado padre Tío Matthew, la ausente y devota madre Sadie, y los siete hijos que junto a su prima Fanny forman una estrafalaria y divertidísima familia. Pero el auténtico centro de esta historia es la joven Linda Radlett y su constante búsqueda del amor. A través de estas páginas la acompañaremos en sus azarosas conquistas y conoceremos a los distintos hombres en los que creyó encontrar el amor. El texto despliega el famoso ingenio satírico y la extraordinaria capacidad de la autora para reconstruir el ambiente, la vida y las personas en los círculos aristocráticos ingleses. Éste es un libro inteligente y divertido, que, además de ser una novela vibrante y mordaz, es también un verdadero trozo de vida.

"Nancy ha escrito una novela llena de exquisitos detalles sobre la vida familiar de los Mitford." Evelyn Waugh

"La gracia de tu estilo se basa en tu renuncia a distinguir entre la cháchara femenina y el lenguaje literario."  —Evelyn Waugh

"Acabo de terminar A la caza del amor y escribo para decirte cuanto la he disfrutado. Has escrito algo que es realmente un monumento a nuestros amigos."  —John Betjeman

"La descripción, ácida y despreocupada, del ameno bullicio de una familia noble inglesa es socarrona, alegre y muy divertida."  —The New Yorker

"Mitford tiene el ingenio y el don para resaltar lo absurdo de cada personaje."  —The Times Literary Supplement

"El arte de Nancy Mitford en su mejor momento es tan fino, tan maravillosamente reluciente de ingenio y alegría que constituye un estilo por si mismo."  —New Republic
