My if he doesn't sound delicious. I've been perusing the dalkey (http://www.dalkeyarchive.com/catalog/show/358)pages on his books. So many tasty titles. Anyone here all Mosley'd up?
Nicholas Mosley, 3rd Baron Ravensdale, 7th Baronet MC (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Military_Cross) (born June 25 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/June_25), 1923 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1923)) is a British novelist. He is the eldest son of Sir Oswald Mosley, 6th Baronet (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oswald_Mosley) and Lady Cynthia Mosley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lady_Cynthia_Mosley), a daughter of Marquess Curzon of Kedleston (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Nathaniel_Curzon,_1st_Marquess_Curzon_of_Ke dleston), Viceroy of India (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viceroy_of_India) and Foreign Secretary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_Secretary). Diana Mosley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diana_Mosley) (one of the noted Mitford family (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitford_family)) was his stepmother.
Born in London (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London), Mosley was educated at Eton (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eton_College) and Oxford (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oxford_University) and served in Italy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italy) during the Second World War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_II), winning the Military Cross for bravery. He succeeded as the 3rd Baron Ravensdale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_Ravensdale) in 1966 on the death of Irene Curzon, 2nd Baroness Ravensdale (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irene_Curzon,_2nd_Baroness_Ravensdale), his mother's sister. On the death of his father, he also succeeded to the baronetcy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosley_Baronets).
His father, Sir Oswald Mosley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sir_Oswald_Mosley), founded the British Union of Fascists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Union_of_Fascists) in 1932 and was an outspoken supporter of Hitler (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hitler) and Mussolini (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mussolini). Sir Oswald was arrested in 1940 for his antiwar campaigning, and spent the majority of World War II in prison. As an adult, Nicholas was a harsh critic of his father in Beyond the Pale: Sir Oswald Mosley and Family 1933-1980 (1983), calling into question his father's motives and understanding of politics. Nicholas' work contributed to the 1997 Channel 4 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Channel_4) television programme titled Mosley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosley_%28film%29) based on his father's life. At the end of the mini-series, Nicholas is portrayed meeting his father in prison to ask him about his national allegiance.
Nicholas Mosley has been married twice and is the father of five children. He lives in London. He is a half-brother of Max Mosley (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Mosley), President of the F?d?ration Internationale de l'Automobile (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%A9d%C3%A9ration_Internationale_de_l%27Automob ile) (FIA), a non-profit association that represents the interests of motoring organisations and car users worldwide and is the governing body for Formula One (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formula_One) and other international motorsports (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motorsport). His heir is his son, Hon. Shaun Nicholas Mosley (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Shaun_Nicholas_Mosley&action=edit&redlink=1) (b. 5 August 1949; m. 1978, Theresa Clifford).

Mosley has also written two volumes of family biography, Rules of the Game: Sir Oswald and Lady Cynthia Mosley 1896-1933 (1982) and Beyond the Pale: Sir Oswald Mosley and Family 1933-1980 (1983)  (http://www.metameta.ca/jbanks/Beyond%20the%20Pale.html), and wrote the screenplay for Joseph Losey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Losey)'s 1973 film, The Assassination of Trotsky. His autobiography (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autobiography) is called Efforts at Truth (1994).
Not directly relevant, but somewhat connected... Bookforum had an interesting article last January on the Mitford's. Since Nicholas did write a family biography, I feel it somewhat belongs here.
