Charming, rather wordy but delightful nonetheless. This is the first volume of Osbert Sitwells autobiography. He is largely forgotten as a novelist now, but his autobiography is still a very readable account of a particular moment in social history - in his case, his late Victorian childhood. This is a world of immense privilege and wealth (and there is only the merest hint of where the money came from - it just seems to be).

This volume gets Osbert only up to about the age of 8 or 9, and a great deal of it is about his forebears (the ancestors who are too far back to be remembered, and then the great-grandparents who have been heard of from older relatives, and the grandparents, who are remembered). A family tree would have been useful! - also some illustrations, although clearly judging from the acknowledgments there were illustrations in the first edition which have been omitted from this reprint.
