'Nancy Mitford comes again'

Dear Madame Arcati,

You are so influential. We tried for years but as a result of that little spat recently on your site [with Susan Hill], the photographs of Nancy Mitford have now been removed from the To Noto page on Amazon's UK site. My compensation? To have the cover of To Noto on Amazon's general dotcom site be replaced by a full face portrait of - yes - Nancy Mitford!

But who IS Nancy Mitford?

Oh dear God! I've seen it! I suspect anonymous.

(Aren't Nancy's eyebrows beautifully sculpted. I can never get mine to go like that.)

Beauty tip: eyebrows go like that if someone sucks them.

Mine don't. We just tried it.

There's a knack. Eyebrows aren't Mivvies. I remember sucking Nancy's eyebrows at the Brancovans' place on Cap Ferrat - oops, my hot water bottle's ready.

Can anyone join this party or do you need a hairgrip?

Hairgrip, anyone?
