5.0 out of 5 stars For violet creams and society dreams, 1 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Redeeming Features (Paperback)
This is a fabulous memoir of high living and exquisite tastes. The society cast runs into hundreds who feature in major and minor roles. Frederick Ashton, Cecil Beaton, and Stephen Tennant appear, to name but a few. The author has had a charmed life and can be charming and alarmingly frank about its gorgeous detail. His love of grand objects, grand people and grand locations comes across clearly. The book is well written and thoughtful. It follows the changing tastes and mores of post war Britain with intelligence and allows younger readers to appreciate the gay world pre 1969. I only wish I could sit in a country house or Chelsea flat to finish this book!
