Wenige Familien aus der englischen ­Aristokratie vereinten die dünkelhaften, hinterweltlichen, aber auch die zu­weilen radikal unkonventionellen Züge dieser Gesellschaftsschicht in so burlesker Konzentration auf sich wie die Mitfords in den dreißiger Jahren des 20. Jahrhunderts. Die Töchter aus diesem guten Hause heirateten Brauerei­erben und Faschisten, waren ­glü­hende Bewunderinnen von Adolf Hitler, ­gingen auf die Fuchsjagd und endlose Cocktailparties – oder aber sie zogen für die Republik in den Spanischen Bürgerkrieg. Letzteres tat Jessica Mitford, die mit ihren Memoiren eines der vielleicht schönsten, komischsten und boshaftesten Porträts nicht nur ihres exzentrisch reaktionären Elternhauses schrieb.
