About the Author:

HUMPHREY CARPENTER (1946-2005) was a prolific biographer and a highly entertaining broadcaster for BBC Radio. He authored many notable biographies, including The Brideshead Generation and J. R. R. Tolkien: A Biography.

Review:

`A constantly enjoyable volume' John Carey, Sunday Times `A triumph of skill and tact... not one dull or slack sentence' Kingsley Amis, New Statesman `It must be technically very difficult to write a biography of more than one person at a time: it is still more difficult to capture the atmosphere of a group... Mr Carpenter has managed both things admirably' Mary Warnock, Sunday Telegraph
