His life, his work, and above all, his unfailing appetite for the beautiful and unusual, are recalled by some of those who have enjoyed his friendship and company. Though often considered a complementary third, to his brother Osbert and sister Edith, in the phenomenon known as 'The Sitwells', Sir Sacheverel is seen here in his own right, as an author whose poetic vision and aesthetic freedom have often allowed his work to transcend all traditional categories.

This portrait of a disintegrating society, framed in Boll's mastery of narrative technique, probes painfully deep, raises questions we would prefer not to ask - but, in the modern world, cannot avoid. Boll's central question is simple: What price are we prepared for freedom?
