About This Item

New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, October 2002. Hardcover. First American Edition (stated) / full number line. Laid-in book review from Washington Post Book World. Fine book in a Fine jacket. Spine ends lightly bumped, otherwise As New. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. xiii + 192 pages.

A unique window on an extraordinary life lived with tremendous zest, discrimination, and intelligence. The Duchess of Devonshire is the youngest of the Mitford siblings, the famous brood that includes the writers Nancy and Jessica. Like them, she has lived an unusually full and remarkable life, and like them she has an inimitable expressive gift. In Counting My Chickens, she has gathered extracts from her diaries and other writings to create a multifaceted portrait of her life at Chatsworth, the home of the Dukes of Devonshire, that is pithy, hilarious, wise, and always richly rewarding.
