House Party, The

Author: Tinniswood, Adrian

Description: The House Party explores privilege and leisure from the viewpoint of the guest and the host, showing us what it was really like to spend a weekend with the Jazz Age industrialist, the bibulous belted earl, and the bright young thing. Tinniswood reveals how the great and good partied at mansions such as Knole and Dunham Massey, how Nancy Astor held court at Cliveden, and what a discreet weekend gathering at Winston Churchill's Chartwell might entail. Much like the very best country house party, this glorious book will keep you highly entertained.
