Chips: The Diaries of Sir Henry Channon

 
9780297760863: Chips: The Diaries of Sir Henry Channon

Sir Henry 'Chips' Channon's extraordinary diaries,first published in 1967,are now considered a modern classic.The years covered in this volume,1934-53,recall a vanished world where Channon's priviliged orbit circled every social and public figure of the day in a round of parties,balls,country-house weekends and endless gossip.His position as a MP enabled him to chronicle,famously,the Abdication Crisis,when King Edward VIII's love for 'jolly,plain'unprepossessing' Mrs Simpson reduced him to 'a broken man at bay'. Culled from some three million words in the original,Robert Rhodes James's selection gives us the moments and characters of history,etched indelibly by a master observer.
