I wonder if she’s distantly related to Nancy Mitford.
I’ve wondered that, too, but I do not know the answer.
Looked this woman up and have to say I was appalled. She was talented, successful and had so much potential and yet everything she made, even her lottery drawing, was spent by her father. She refused holiday invitations because her father could not live without her? Sounds like the father had no business having anything to do with money.
Indeed! There is a lot to be appalled by. His behaviour was quite disgusting. He blew through a lot of money (her money) and kept her from having a real life outside of taking care of him. At least she had her writing, I guess.
