Product description

Review

Just as querulous, misanthropic, greedy, vain and fascinating as ever. One reads, one deplores - and reads on with vindictive delight (Patrick Skene-Caitling, Sunday Telegraph)

The greatest diarist of our times - funny, feline and disconcertingly honest, wielding a rapier to Alan Clark's cudgel (Jeremy Lewis, The Oldie)

His wonderful diaries demonstrates to anyone with eyes to see that he was a superb chronicler of the human condition (Hugh Massingberd, Spectator)

'Funny, shrewd, waspish and wise ... Lees-Milne was the greatest diarist of this century, and one of its finest writers' (Jeremy Lewis, Literary Review)

'Nothing short of phenomenal ... surely the finest diary of the 20th Century, truly a great masterpiece of English literature' (Hugh Massingberd, Country Life)

'Without question one of the finest diarists of the 20th century' (Selina Hastings, Spectator)

Book Description

The first of three abridged volumes of 'the greatest diarist of our times'
