9780753821053: The Duff Cooper Diaries

The long awaited and highly revealing diaries of the politician, diplomat, and socialite who married Lady Diana Cooper, Duff Cooper was a first-rate witness of just about every significant event from 1914 to 1950. His diary includes some magnificent set pieces—as a young soldier at the end of World War I, as a politician during the General Strike of 1926, as King Edward VIII's friend at the time of the Abdication, and from Paris after the liberation in 1944, when he became British ambassador. If Duff Cooper's name has dimmed in the 50 years since his death, publication of these diaries will bring him to the fore once again. His family has long resisted publication—indeed Duff Cooper's nephew, the publisher Rupert Hart-Davis, was so shocked by the sexual revelations that he suggested to John Julius Norwich that it might be best for all concerned if they were burnt. Now, superbly edited by John Julius Norwich, who familial link ensures all kinds of additional information as footnotes, these diaries join the ranks.

About the Author:

Duff Cooper is he author of numerous biographies, notably Talleyrand, and the memoir Old Men Forget. John Julies Norwichhis only sontrained as a diplomat, but gave up the Foreign Office to write. He is the premier historian of Venice. He is currently writing a history of the Mediterranean.

Review:

it's the combination of the public with the personal that makes these diaries riveting. * MAIL ON SUNDAY * He discusses serious things intelligently, and casts and glittering and laconic light on a lost world of luxury and highly strung affairs, many of them his own. * SUNDAY TIMES * Duff Cooper was as close to the action as anyone during the dramatic events of the mid-20th century. He was also comically priapic, commiting enough sexual indiscretions to fill a dozen diaries. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * compelling * DAILY TELEGRAPH * This is a fabulous, jaw-dropping read. -- Robbie Hudson * SUNDAY TIMES * Cooper offers a view on some of the political issues which dominated the first half of the 20th century... as well as an insight into his extravagant social life. fascinating for two things: their testament to an exhilarating century and their witness to a vanished age of power and privilege... What a man. * THE OBSERVER - PAPERBACK OF THE WEEK *
