Henry ‘chips’ Channon: The Diaries 1943-57 (vol 3) by Chips Channon and Simon Heffer (ed) | 9781529151725.An utterly addictive glimpse of London high society and politics in the 40s and 50s, superlatively edited by Simon Heffer. Elliot Templeton in Somerset Maugham's novel The Razor's Edge (1944) and the disappointed schoolmaster Croker-Harris in Rattigan's play The Browning Version (1948) were partly inspired by Channon. His energies, though, are increasingly absorbed by a private life that at times reaches Byzantine levels of complexity.

He married into the Guinness family, and became a Conservative MP for Southend from 1935 until his death.He knew or was friends with all the leading politicians and aristocrats of the period, wined and dined Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in the months before the Abdication crisis, and observed at first hand the last days of appeasement. Throughout these final fourteen years Chips assiduously describes events in and around Westminster, gossiping about individual MPs' ambitions and indiscretions, but also rising powerfully to the occasion to capture the mood of the House on VE Day or the ceremony of George VI's funeral.
