  • Summary

  • They were young, monied, snobbish and cliquey. The Bright Young Things were determined to rip up the rule book of social behaviour and replace it with a new shiny partygoing lifestyle. Above all they loved art, welcoming middle class arrivistes like photographer Cecil Beaton whose daring photo session with Edith Sitwell won him fame. But feted new artist Bruno Hat concealed a shocking secret.
