One of the banes about my living in China
is not being able to get books from the library. Like this book from New York Review of books:
In Tearing Haste: Letters between Deborah Devonshire and Patrick Leigh Fermor
Patrick Leigh Fermor and Deborah Devonshire, edited by Charlotte Mosley
I would love to read it! But there’s another thing I can’t ignore. I’m in China to accomplish something and that leaves me little time to read anyway!
- Wait for Me! Memoirs of the Youngest Mitford Sister by Deborah Devonshire: review (telegraph.co.uk)
- The Duchess of Devonshire: ‘When you are very old, you cry over some things, but not a lot’ (guardian.co.uk)
- “Fear is the bane of modern Western culture” (sebastianmarshall.com)
