Scenes and Apparitions : The Roy Strong Diaries 1988-2003 Paperback / softback
'Viper wit from the gardener, writer and Knight of exquisite taste' DAILY TELEGRAPH'Funny, barbed and moving ... magnificently readable' THE TIMESScenes and Apparitions covers a period of Roy Strong's life from 1988 to 2003.
A sequel to Splendours and Miseries, it is an unmissable record of how a citizen at the close of the second Elizabethan age observed and chronicled his own world at the turn of the century.
Although it is not without tragedy - the murder of his friend Gianni Versace, and the death of his beloved wife Julia Trevelyan Oman - there is plenty to enjoy from his descriptions of Elton John's fiftieth birthday party, to a concert for the Queen Mother, and his portraits of marriage, friendship, work and his celebrated garden, The Laskett.
