    Diana Mitford Mosley, tagged on this book s cover The Most Controversial Mitford Sister , died in Paris in 2003 aged 93 The onetime associate of Adolph Hitler, who attended her 1936 wedding to British Union of Fascists leader Sir Oswald Mosley at Joseph Goebbels Berlin home, was famously unrepentant to the last about political leanings that led her to Holloway Prison without charge or trial, on MI5 s advice, for most of WWII They ll go on persecuting me until I say Hitler was ghastly, she said in a late life interview Well, what s the point in saying that We all know that he was a monster, that he was very cruel and did terrible things But that doesn t alter the fact that he was obviously an interesting figure It was fascinating for me, at 24, to sit and talk with him, to ask him questions and get answers, even if they weren t true ones No torture on earth would get me to say anything different This brave, frank singularity was her lifelong hallmark, besides her aristocratic standing, two highbrow marriages and legendary beauty, which her novelist friend Evelyn Waugh said ran through the room ...

    A somewhat interesting, very dated book of essays and articles by the beautiful and charming Diana Mitford Mosley, one of the famous and literarily prolific Mitford sisters I am wild about this British aristocratic, idiosyncratic family, and am in the process of reading everything in print by and about them The Pursuit of Laughter, a bit of wordplay on the title of sister Nancy s novel The Pursuit of Love, makes for an uneven 21st century American read Many of the subjects of the articles are long read and passed into obscurity, the places unfamiliar to anyone who has not traveled extensively in Europe What I was able to follow, because of past reading on historic subjects covered almost made up for slogging through the rest of it Mosley s wit is spot on, and she is ...

    There are so many funny stories in this book, one that leaps to mind is Bertrand Rusell reading Lytton Strachey while in prison, and being reprimanded for the loudness of his laughter prison was supposed to be a place of punishment Diana, too, spent time in prison The collecti...

    Aristocratic, beautiful, intelligent, charming, literate and trilingual, a personal friend of Hitler who was a witness at her wedding to a charismatic politician who vociferously opposed war with Germany and sister of an avowed Nazi, it s no wonder that Diana Mitford Mosley terrified MI5 The sheer spitefulness and pettiness of the treatment she got, none the less, almost defies belief all, of course, without any charge, trial or chance to plead not guilty An example Her cell light being too dim to read by, she offered to buy a brighter one She was refused.This background might perhaps lead one to expect her writings to be political rants Nothing could be further from the truth This is a wide panorama of short essays, reviews, pen portraits, and one interview and since Diana knew personally many of the protagonists of the books she reviews, her comments and corrections are of especial interest.So much has been written both by and about the Mitfords that it may be hard for the newcomer to know where to start The obvious entry point is Nancy s best three novels all with common characters and all hilarious The Pursuit of LoveLove in a Cold ClimateThe BlessingThen perhaps the book that made Jessica famous, The American Way of Death. If these don t interest you, there s not much point in going further.If, on the other hand, t...

    After reading a biography of the Mitford sisters, I picked this book to get of a sense of Diana The book contains selected essays and book reviews she wrote, a diary of 1953 1960, and portraits of several important people in her life, including her husband Sir Oswald Mosley, leader of the British Union of Fascists.I found the book incredibly interesting, even though, at times, Diana s viewpoints appear naive and represent poor judgment Her wit and humor shine through in her book reviews and make you want to search them out The most interesting part is truly her perspectives on Germany, Hitler, England and WWII It s not often that we find people defending Hitler for his humor or good company, and as much as her comments make you cringe, they are quite interesting to read, to say the least.I found her portrait of Sir Oswald Mosley the most fascinating part It truly gives you a sense of how committed she was to Mosley and his ideas, and ...

    Finished reading The Pursuit of Laughter Essays, Articles, Reviews Diary of Diana Mosley April 2014As the subtitle indicates, this a mixed bag with mixed results, mainly because it is not of uniform interest as a single theme might be But none the less most enjoyable for all that Her portrait of her infamous second husband was particularly interesting, sympathetic of course as his son s was not.It s hard to find the editor s name I d be hiding my name too if I did the mediocre job that this book is on the editing side There are no specific dates, only years for articles and reviews, the unhelpfully broad 1953 1960 for the diaries, and broad bush stroke eras as chapter headings which didn t always fit anyway ...

    I love the Mitford sisters and I think Diana is a wonderful character and very good at writing I really liked this book but I found the content to be disappointing I would have liked or her life story as well It was nicely sectioned and a unique view on the current state of affairs in the world.

    The book reviews and portraits of mid century figures are erudite, witty and fascinating but it s occasionally hard to stomach Lady Mosley s fascism and her barely concealable anti Semitism Recommended with these caveats.
