[Tynan, The Diaries of Kenneth Tynan.

[Tynan, Kenneth] / Lahr, John (Edited by). The Diaries of Kenneth Tynan. London, Bloomsbury, 2001. 16 cm x 24 cm. VIII, 439 pages with illustrations. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective mylar. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Clean inside with solid binding.

"Irreverent, indiscreet, wildly funny, sad, shocking yet inspiring, the legendary diaries of Kenneth Tynan are above all compelling literature of a very high order. Here was a man who knew virtually everyone in the theatre and film worlds on both sides of the Atlantic for three decades - and had fascinating gossip on most of them. A brilliant and feared critic, Kenneth Tynan was a nabob of the National Theatre alongside Laurence Olivier, and he was also the daring impresario who created 'Oh Calcuta'. He was a notorious eccentric, a louche sophisticate: connoisseur of cuisine, wine, literature and women. Where else could you find such a judicious blend of aesthetics, theatre lore, love, marriage, sex and politics? These sizzling diaries will remind older readers of a man whose reputation as the greatest critic of the twentieth century is still unchallenged and introduce younger readers to an electrifying writer who simply could not be boring".
