Asure seeking band of bohemian party givers and blue blooded socialites they romped through the s gossip column. Once I arrived at the second or third chapter I found this book difficult to put down for the night The style of the writing keeps readers moving along at a fast pace perhaps reminding us of the frenetic pace of the 1920s themselves Each prominent Bright Young Person's life and character is detailed with portraits drawn clearly After reading this book one almost feels as though one knows each member of the group personally Among the members of the group upon whom focus is placed are Nancy Mitford and her sisters Unity and Diana the Fascists among the sisters Alec and Evelyn Waugh Cecil Beaton Elizabeth Ponsonby and Brenda Deen Paul Other less well known members of the Bright Young People whom we get to know include Patrick Balfour Brian Howard Stephen Tennant and others whose life achievements failed to keep them prominent in the public memoryI'd recommend this book for readers interested in 20th century American culture the 1920s in particular and people who are curious about the small group of rich and boisterous youngsters who had so much influence during their time and yet now seem like falling stars very bright for a moment and then gone

I would never have thought that anyone could write a book about the Jazz Age that could be so sleep inducing The author constantly goes into tedious detail where it is not warranted The core group of the Bright Young People of London in the 1920's were the first people via modern media to be famous for being famous They had no special talent or skills so how much can you write about them There were some people on the edge of this group such as Evelyn Waugh who went on to greater accomplishmentsIn the case of Elizabeth Ponsonby the author seems to have committed to paper everything he managed to find on her However Elizabeth's only claim to fame was that she was great fun at parties And that's all she had no special talent or skill and did nothing of social significance A Wikipedia article on her has been deleted on this basis She did sponge off her long suffering parents until her premature death from drink in her late thirties but she's not the first person in history to have done that Yet the author gives much space to her story uoting extensively from her father's diary where one or two uotations would have sufficed I'd give this 15 stars if I could There is some interesting information here but it is lost in a morass of insignificant detail
