The three Curzon sisters - Irene, Cynthia (Cimmie) who married Sir Oswald Mosley, and Alexandra (Baba) - were at the heart of the fast and glittering world of the '20's and '30's. The sisters saw British fascism from behind the scenes and had an equally intimate view of the arrival of Wallis Simpson and the marriage and life of the Windsors. Based on unpublished letters and diaries, this is a wonderfully revealing portrait of British upper-class life during the first half of the 20th century.More
