Wait for Me!

Wait for Me! is a misleading title: people have been running to catch up with the youngest of the famous Mitford sisters ever since she could walk. At the age of ninety, Debo (as she is known to all her friends) looks back on a life lived at a cracking pace.

She tells the story of her upbringing, lovingly and wittily describing her parents (so memorably fictionalised by her sister Nancy): she talks candidly about her brothers and sisters, and their politics (while not being at all political herself), finally setting the record straight. Throughout the book she writes brilliantly about the country and her deep attachment to it and those who live and work in it.
