A fine, clean, First Edition copy of "The Roy Strong Diaries 1967 - 1987", published by Weidenfield and Nicolson in 1997. For over three decades, Roy Strong has teased, tantalised, amused and sometimes enraged the British public, firstly in his capacity as the flamboyant Director of two great cultural institutions, the National Portrait Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum, and more recently as broadcaster, writer, garden expert and historian. Roy Strong's Diaries take the reader into the heart of his career from 1967 to 1987, vividly recording events as they happened, and revealing Sir Roy to be not just a mercurial and brilliant administrator, but also a shrewd observer of the glittering social and political milieu into which he was drawn. Hard covers, 461 pages, black and white plates, original dust jacket.
