In this delightful comedy, Fanny-the quietly observant narrator of Nancy Mitfordrsquo;s two most famous novels-finally takes center stage. Fanny Wincham-last seen as a young woman inThe Pursuit of LoveandLove in a Cold Climate-has lived contentedly for years as housewife to an absent-minded Oxford don, Alfred. But her life changes overnight when her beloved Alfred is appointed English Ambassador to Paris. Soon she finds herself mixing with royalty and Rothschilds while battling her hysterical predecessor, Lady Leone, who refuses to leave the premises. When Fannyrsquo;s tender-hearted secretary begins filling the embassy with rescued animals and her teenage sons run away from Eton and show up with a rock star in tow, things get entirely out of hand. Gleefully sending up the antics of mid-century high society,Donrsquo;t Tell Alfredis classic Mitford.
