Philip Hoare's definitive biography of Stephen Tennant. The book covers the whole of Tennant's long and eclectic life, including his precocious childhood, the years as a Bright Young Thing and his friendship with Whistler and Beaton, his love affair with Seigfried Sassoon, his writings and art, and his final years spent as a recluse in Wilsford Manor where all manner of stars made the pilgrimage to his bedside.
