Anjelica Huston's seven favorite books

The actor Anjelica Huston's new memoir is A Story Lately Told: Coming of Age in Ireland, London, and New York. A Story Lately Told ends as Huston launches her Hollywood life. The second part of her story—Watch Me—opens in Los Angeles in 1973 and will be published in Fall 2014.

One of her seven favorite books, as shared with The Week magazine:
The Pursuit of Love by Nancy Mitford.

This 1945 novel was the first in a trilogy about an upper-class British family whose second-oldest daughter is haunted in her own pursuits of love and marriage by her mother's reputation as "The Bolter." Love in a Cold Climate and Don't Tell Alfred fill out the series.

The Pursuit of Love is among Elizabeth Buchan's top ten books to comfort & console during a divorce and Anna Quindlen's five best novels on women in search of themselves.
