Product description


Praise for the earlier volumes in the series

A master of the diary form, he combines the profound and the inconsequential with his pithy descriptions of personalities and places . . . For their range of interests and emotions, their piquant observation and judicious shifts of self-analysis, Lees-Milnes diaries deserve their august reputation

(Christopher Silvester, Daily Express)

These diaries, superbly abridged by Michael Bloch, have a fin de Proust atmosphere of delicate regret, sprinkled with gossipy asides (Miranda Seymour, Guardian)

Lees-Milne latecomers will find no better introduction to the diarist than this anthology of his earliest journals . . . Reading these is a mix of shame and delight . . . Hes the best company, beautifully frank, funny and addictive (Evening Standard)

James Lees-Milnes beautiful style and pace remind one how it should be done . . . His passion for buildings and for literary heritage runs through the diary and yet is equalled by a passion for understanding character (Observer)

These diaries offer a peerless portrait of stately homes and their owners at their lowest ebb . . . James Lees-Milne is the Man who Saved Britain (Max Hastings, Daily Mail)

'A very good writer' (Contemporary Review)

Book Description

The final compilation from James Lees-Milnes celebrated diaries covering the last fourteen years of his life.
