RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 42435034 LA English T1 Osbert Sitwell A1 Ziegler, Philip., PB Knopf PP New York YR 1999 SN 0679446508 9780679446507 AB "At the heart of every literary fracas from 1918 until well after 1945, Osbert was a close friend and sometime sparring partner of T.S. Eliot, Aldous Huxley, Evelyn Waugh and Cyril Connolly, and a ferocious enemy of Noel Coward, the Leavises and Winston Churchill. His love life was notoriously turbulent; he could be outrageous, perverse, arrogant, bullying; he could be generous, loyal, considerate, public-spirited - but he was never dull." "This biography provides social insights, a striking overview of literary Britain in this century and, a portrait of a remarkable human being."--Jacket.
