Description
Information
Osbert Sitwell, with his siblings Edith and Sacheverell, was at the heart of every literary fracas from 1918 until well after 1945. He was a close friend and sometime sparring partner of Eliot, Aldous Huxley, Evelyn Waugh and Cyril Connolly; and a ferocious enemy of Sir John Squire, Noel Coward, the Leavises and Winston Churchill. His love life was turbulent and caused him constant disquiet. He could be outrageous, perverse, arrogant, bullying; he could be generous, loyal, considerate, public-spirited; but he was never dull.

Meticulously researched and beautifully written, this entertaining biography provides some extraordinary social insights and a striking overview of literary Britain in the twentieth century, as well as a moving portrait of a most remarkable writer and human being.
