Promotional Information

'A tremendous read' Spectator New material includes Versailles peace conference and 1920s Last available in 1989 Magnificent reviews on original publication: 'Not only a brilliant portrait of English society, but a touching self-portrait of a highly intelligent and civilised man driven by conscience to enter politics,' - Kenneth Clark; 'The book as a historical document has so many merits that it is hard to know where to begin,' - Denis Brogan, Guardian; 'One stops to marvel at the achievement. Honesty, decency, modesty, magnanimity, are stamped on every page, as evident as the wit,' Michael Foot, Evening Standard; 'He remains completely unaware that he is tapping out a masterpiece. As lively as Creevey or the de Goncourts', A P Ryan, The Times.

About the Author

Nigel Nicolson is the co-founder of Weidenfeld & Nicolson; he was a Conservative MP in the 1950s, but was sacked by his Bournemouth and Christchurch constituency for attacking Anthony Eden, the PM, over Suez. He went on to make a career of writing.


'Nicolson's great gift as a diarist is that he does not simply recoprd events: he brings those events and the characters in them brilliantly to life. His diary entries are astonishingly rich min-portraits of people and places, with a telling eye for detail... Brilliant, riveting stuff.' TRIBUNE
