The Unexpurgated Beaton: The Diaries, As He Wrote Them, 1970-1980
New York: Knopf, 2003.
Beaton was at the center of world of fashion, theater, and film. He chronicled many aspects of the British Empire at war.
His diaries from this never-before-published decade are left unedited, although not without entertainingly waspish comment from his literary executor, Hugo Vickers.
