“…he never alarms you with his knowledge, yet brings it out in the most offhand and entertaining way.” Cecil Beaton on Aldous Huxley

“If, oddly enough, he has chosen California for his home, the products of his pen are still respectfully and enthusiastically received on both sides of the Atlantic. In short, he is an acknowledged dean of contemporary literature, and we his admiring pupils.”

Cecil Beaton, 1957
