Product description

Review

'Acute observation is coupled with entertaining literary style and ever-present humour . . . Michael Bloch has edited these diaries formidably well' (Bevis Hillier)

'Woefully funny, elegantly observed, appallingly indiscreet, these diaries are the best record we have of a world still recognizable but fast vanishing beneath the waves of history' (Peter Parker)

'His pages abound in delightful shafts of self-revelation . . . a singularly funny, modest, sweet, lovable gentleman whose controversial prose is yet infused with a poetic vision of the essence of Old England' (Hugh Massingberd)

'Raw emotions, fearlessly expressed, spice every page' (Duff Hart-Davis)

'Always honest, always curious, always lovable' (Lynn Barber)

'What matters the clash of titans, when a clear and fastidious intellect shares its preoccupation with the minutiae of a civilised gentleman's day?' (Alan Clark)

'The qualities which make his diaries addictive reading include a sense of the ridiculous, and a total frankness about whatever shows him at a disadvantage. He is wonderfully observant, and his sheer humanity shines out on every page' (The Field)

'Unquestionably one of the greatest English diarists, a rival to Pepys' (David Watkin)

Book Description

The second of the trilogy of abridged volumes from the diaries praised as 'one of the treasures of English literature'
