Description - Dresden by Lord Berners

A friend and confident of Igor Stravinsky, Gertrude Stein and many other dazzling figures from the 20th century, Lord Berners is now truly coming into his own. A newly discovered autobiographical reverie, Dresden, offers a window into the adolescence of an extremely perceptive and sensitive young man. Like Proust, it is in the deeply personal where Berners shines the brightest. Dresden is the final volume in his series of autobiographical work which are both charming and subtle.
