Nigella Lawson Slights Sophia Waugh


I loved this story in which Nigella Lawson put a book up for sale on eBay. No big news there, but the book was personally inscribed to her by the book’s author, Sophia Waugh (granddaughter of famous novelist Evelyn Waugh) and had been given to her as a gift. In a funny twist of “whoops”, the buyer on eBay turned out to be a mutual friend of both Waugh and Lawson, who busted Lawson in an instant. Waugh posted the whole thing on twitter, and from the looks of it, what could have turned into hurt feelings and a snit instead resulted in a big laugh between friends. I like that.

  1. You’ve seen her library, right? Easy to mix up a book here and there:
