Product description

'Mr Green has written a brilliant book - but, more than that, it is one that helps us to understand how we have come about, and to appreciate the forces and falsities that have shaped and shattered our culture.' John Carey, Literary Review After the first World War a brilliant and influential generation of young men decisively rejected the responsible and bitter world of their fathers - a world of manliness, fighting, failure, careers and families. Theirs was a creed of decadence and dandyism. Their movement was led by Harold Acton and Brian Howard and included, in all shades of commitment from affiliation to eventual disgust, Evelyn Waugh, Cyril Connolly, Robert Byron, Henry Green, John Betjeman and Anthony Powell; as well as rogues, such as Randolph Churchill, Oswald Mosley, Burgess, Philby and Maclean. In this engrossing and provocative book Martin Green traces the fate of these gifted 'children of the sun' and explains how they became the most powerful cultural models in the English-speaking world.
Published in 1992. There is some sunning. Illustrated with 30+ photographs of the time. The book is in good condition.
