Catalogue Note

The printed dedication of this book reads "With love to Mary and Dorothy Lygon". Although known to her friends as Maimie, Lady Mary Lygon was fondly nicknamed 'Blondy' by Waugh. The majority of Black Mischief was written while staying with the sisters at their ancestral seat - Madresfield. The house and the family would serve as the blueprint for Waugh's later novel, Brideshead Revisited.
