The Crown and Downton Abbey imagine the twentieth century through aristocrat eyes. But what about a real aristocrat?

In A Life of Contrasts, the honourable Diana Mitford, the most glamorous of Britain's Bright Young Things, rivetingly narrates her long life in her own inimitable Mitford way. Author Evelyn Waugh and politician Oswald Mosley fell in love with her, as well as Britain's richest man, and she knew not only Winston Churchill - her uncle - but also Adolf Hitler. She was a guest in the grandest houses in Britain but also lived in Holloway Prison, London.

Later the Duke and Duchess of Windsor entered her life, followed by Nelson Mandela... Hers is a uniquely intimate memoir from an exceptional perspective.
