Serious Pleasures: 2the Life of Stephen Tennant

Philip Hoare, Author Penguin Books $15 (480p) ISBN 978-0-14-016532-6
Flashy artist/writer Stephen Tennant (1906-1987) cultivated a life of glamour and an international circle that included Cecil Beaton, Truman Capote and Willa Cather. According to PW , ``Hoare's extensive research is backed by excerpts from the subject's correspondence, interviews with survivors of the glittering age and striking photos, all heightening interest in a definitive Peter Pan.''
