A brilliant social satire, it’s also been called the Vanity Fair for the Twenties: the dilettantes who frequent Lady Tantamount’s society parties engage in dazzling and witty conversations in these wickedly funny portraits of D.H. Lawrence, Katherine Mansfield, Ottoline Morrell and Huxley himself.
Written 85 years ago but incredibly contemporary. A truly fantastic book, a splendid picture of modern life and people's psychology, contradictions and ways of conducting life. Everything that happens is intrinsically like the man it happens to, says Spandrell. You can agree or disagree with it, as much as the beautiful comparison between real living and the search of truth, but these reflections make this book outstanding.
