Reviews

`Enlivened with a rich crop of anecdotes ... Sassoon emerges as a delicate, almost fairytale figure ... as a supreme networker, a dedicated politician and a lover of beautiful things' The Times

`Damian Collins has written the first history of Sassoon's life, offering an extraordinary insight into a colourful, quintessential aristocrat' Vanity Fair

`Sassoon's legacy was like a rare scent on a pocket handkerchief. Damian Collins has done a good job in assembling the pieces to create a readable and lively picture of this extravagant creature' Literary Review

`Sir Phillip Sassoon was an extraordinary man, whose life vividly illustrates how politics changed' New Statesman

`Damian Collins rehearses the party life of his subject, but it's the political life that fascinates him' Country Life
