Fourteen Friends - LEES-MILNE, James

John Murray, 1996, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Good - in Good DJ. Ex-library with usual marks.

In this delightful sequence of sketches the charm of the diarist is much in evidence. Witty, observant, sharp, affectionate, he brings to life fourteen friends who, unknowingly, helped form his values, frame his views, and add relish to his days. An intriguing and varied assembly, they include for instance Vita Sackville-West, Sacheverell Sitwell, James Pope-Hennessy and Henry Yorke, all of whom we see afresh from a wonderfully perceptive and idiosyncratic standpoint.
