About this product
- DescriptionThe sequel to Lord Berners' First Childhood, A Distant Prospect is a poignant and witty account of Eton, early adolescence and a boy's awakening to the spell of Wagner, ballet and musical composition. Not only witty and amusing, but contains things to ponder over in plenty behind the mere youthful years. The portraits of his friends are complete portraits, sketched brilliantly in a few strokes.' - Tatler'
- Author BiographyLord Berners (1883-1950) was a composer, novelist, painter, memoirist, conspicuous aesthete and the real life character on whom Nancy Mitford based Lord Merlin in The Pursuit of Love.
