"An effete corps of impudent snobs who characterize themselves as intellectuals"
Great book, interesting life. His pals are fascinating too. Look for the biography on Rex Whistler, written by his brother Laurence. Rex was a queer who fucked Tallulah Bankhead when she was very young and living in London. 'The first blonde bush I ever saw' he commented.
I like your taste and I'd like so much to see your short reviews of the books you present here.Reading was my job but,as I don't have as much time for it now as I used to,I made my reading list quite selective.
Yes, great book! I am really enjoying it. He certainly knew a lot of people. I will look for the Whistler bio. Another bio I want to read is about Beverley Nichols. His first (and still in-print) book, was illustrated by Whistler...
You are always really sweet to me Nicco! I will do my best not to disappoint! :)
