Abstract:

In his memoir, British writer, publisher and politician Nigel Nicolson (1917-2004), "unravels the many strings of his utterly unusual and diverse experiences, painting a vivid portrait of a truly fascinating life." Nicolson shares his childhood in the heart of Bloomsbury as the son of Harold Nicolson and Vita Sackville-West. Nicolson obligingly offers up details of his parents' marriage, including both parents' multiple bisexual affairs. He details his publishing career with an account of the publishing house he founded with partner George Weidenfeld and the books they championed. Readers who know him primarily as a war historian will enjoy his reminiscences of his experiences in North Africa and Italy during World War II. Rounding out his life, he was a Member of Parliament in the 1950s. Finally, he describes his home and the world famous gardens he created there.
