About Book

In this delightful sequel to Memoirs of an Aesthete Harold Acton continues where he left off in 1939. Packed with recollections of the famous personalities he knew such as the Sitwells, Norman Douglas, Bernard Berenson, Gertrude Stein and Evelyn Waugh, this book brilliantly evokes a society that now seems remote.
