(price-clipped) [spine slightly turned, no other discernible wear; jacket shows minor wear at extremities, slight wrinkling/creasing along top edge of rear panel]. (B&W photographs) The second memoir by the next-to-youngest Mitford sibling (and for my money the most interesting, and the best writer, of the lot) "takes us into her life as a happy warrior -- from her feisty girlhood as one of the famous/notorious daughters of an eccentric British peer, through her years as a Red Menace (member of the American Communist Party in its salad days) and then as an (unrepentant) ex-Menace, to her incarnation as scourge and terror of the American Funeral Industry."
