About the Author
James Lees-Milne, who died in 1997, ran the National Trust's operation to rescue historic houses from 1936 to 1951. His prolific output as a writer includes many works on architecture and several biographies, along with the much-acclaimed memoirs Another Self, People and Places and Fourteen Friends. His eight other volumes of diaries, all rapturously received, are Ancestral Voices, Prophesying Peace, Caves of Ice, Midway on the Waves, A Mingled Measure, Ancient as the Hills, Holy Dread and Through Wood and Dale. Diana Mosley described the last as 'a comic masterpiece'. Michael Bloch, the editor of this volume, was appointed by James Lees-Milne to be his literary executor, and is now writing his biography. He lives in London.
