When Great Aunt Wilhelmina Henniker-Ross died at 81, she left her nephews a handsome trunk-and a job it took them 35 years to complete. The Louis Vitton was stuffed with notes Auntie had scribbled-and photographs she'd pilfered-in the 21 years following her husband's death which she'd spent free-loading on one relation or another. Her command: Make a book of it. The erudite and hilarious result borders on the seditious.
