Description

KPFA's Sidney Roger interviews political activist Jessica Mitford (1917 - 1996) about her autobiography "Daughters and rebels" (Houghton & Mifflin Co., 1960, first published under the title "Hons and rebels" in the UK). She is introduced as Decca Treuhaft (Decca being her nickname, Treuhaft her husband's surname). She discusses her unusual family upbringing, including her turn toward Communism while two of her sisters embraced fascism and her parents' standing in the British aristocracy, and the death of her first husband, Esmond Romilly, in World War II.
