Product description

From the Back Cover

Praise for Cyril Connolly: A Life:
'A sparkling biography...stylish and funny...unflaggingly entertaining.' John Walsh, Independent

'One of the funniest literary biographies I have ever read...Excellent, wildly funny and informative.' Auberon Waugh, Literary Review

'An honest portrait of the most poetical prose writer of our century - vastly entertaining and compelling.' James Lees-Milne, Spectator

'A biography brimming with energy and enthusiasm... He is a subtle and intelligent critic of Connolly's work, and his sympathy for his subject is unbounded.' Selina Hastings, Sunday Telegraph

'Sympathetic, definitive and highly entertaining.' Robert McCrum, Observer

'An exceptionally delightful and definitive biography... Like a good novel, this biography is full of memorable scenes in which the hero's character gradually assumes that of a difficult but cherished friend - one whose company annoys and amuses in almost equal terms.' Michael Shelden, Daily Telegraph

'An enthralling biography...a probably definitive account of an enchanting man.' David Leitch, Guardian
