Splendours and Miseries: a life of Sacheverell Sitwell 14 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A fascinating look at a member of the celebrated Sitwell family. I enjoyed learning more about this writer, poet and adventurer and about his friendships with T.S. Eliot, William Walton, Diaghliev, Harold Acton and Evelyn Waugh, etc. Extremely well written, lively account of the Sitwell family and of a literary circle in the 1920's. The photo sections were also fascinating, showing "Sachie" as a schoolboy, with his family and with Cecil Beaton,among others. Recommended book!
