Having enjoyed in the course of reading it the loudest and longest laughs I have enjoyed in the last two years I am quite incapable of making any critical observations.

I found the book enchanting from cover to cover. Compton Mackenzie, Daily Mail First Childhood and A Distant Prospect are quietly remarkable volumes of autobiography. Both books are alive with unforgotten terrors and unforgiven indignities. Alan Hollinghurst, TLS, March 1998Not only witty and amusing, but contains things to ponder over in plenty behind the mere youthful years. The portraits of his friends are complete portraits, sketched brilliantly in a few strokes. TatlerA Distant Prospect is the second volume of Lord Berners perfectly formed, hilarious, and beautifully written memoirs.

Berners was a great English eccentric, a composer, novelist, painter and conspicuous aesthete whose friends included Gertrude Stein, Diaghilev and Sitwell. The character of Lord Merlin in Nancy Mitfords The Pursuit of Love is based on Lord Berners, who would dip his pigeons into basins of magenta, green and ultramarine so that when released they resembled, Mitford wrote, a cloud of confetti in the sky.

These memoirs are classics of their kind.
