Edith Sitwell's Autobiography
Taken Care Of: An Autobiography
London: Hutchinson, 1965.
First UK edition.
Hardcover. Fine in near-fine dust jacket.
Perhaps because she died before revising the proofs, this extraordinary memoir has all the candor and acidic humor of Sitwell's peculiar, poetic social whirl.
Cecil Beaton's photos capture her diva essence and love of outrageous style.
