Read in August, 2011

I read this book because it was one of J.K. Rowling's favorites. I was struck by Mitford's perceptions of American culture. I learned a great deal about British history leading up to WWII and the class system. The British system seems less binary than U.S. politics. I was amused at Jessica and Esmond's entrepreneurial (capitalistic?) tendencies.
