The eldest of the infamous Mitford sisters, Nancy Mitford CBE (28 November 1904 30 June 1973) was a popular English novelist and biographer. Her most famous books were probably the romantic novels The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate. Both were adapted for television by the BBC in 2001.

- Wigs on the Green (1935)
- The Pursuit of Love (1945)
- Love in a Cold Climate (1949)
- The Little Hut (1957) — film screenplay
