A brilliant and feared critic, Kenneth Tynan was a nabob of the National Theatre alongside Laurence Olivier, and he was also the daring impresario who created "Oh Calcutta". He was a notorious eccentric, a louche sophisticate: connoisseur of cuisine, wine, literature and women. Where else could you find such a judicious blend of aesthetics, theatre lore, love, marriage, sex and politics? These sizzling diaries will remind older readers of a man whose reputation as the greatest critic of the twentieth century is still unchallenged and introduce younger readers to an electrifying writer who simply could not be boring.

"Kenneth Tynan is about to become a star...his scandalous diaries are a confessional cross between the two Alans, Clark and Bennett" Scotland on Sunday 'No one, they say, ever erected a statue to a critic, but Kenneth Tynan has bequeathed something even larger to posterity: a legendary life" Michael Billington, Guardian 'The Diaries of Kenneth Tynan don't half dish the dirt...Packed with scandal and salacious anecdotes about his famous friends and, believe me, it is premier-cru gossip, these diaries are a testament to his flamboyant wit' Tatler
