James Lee-Milne Diaries 1942-1954

Oddly mesmeric. Just Lady this Lord blah, visits to country houses. That's all really. Permeating with immense snobbery and casual anti-semitism. Manifested as the very posh are very good and beautiful, Jews are without exception ugly and bad. Poor folk are good if they are properly poor, peasants or proles, and not a threat. The middle-classes are laughably aspirational. Yet it is a life full of lives long gone, and a lesson.

I think I'll wait for Jamie Lee Curtis' memoirs. Which should at least have more nude scenes.
