Charmed Life: The Phenomenal World of Philip Sassoon

4/4/16 2:30 pm - 4/4/16 3:30 pm

Northampton-born politician Damian Collins, MP read Modern History at Oxford University and worked at the M&C Saatchi advertising agency before entering national politics as Conservative MP for Folkestone and Hythe. He is a member of the House of Commons Select Committee for Culture, Media and Sport. Charmed Life is his first book, and is the only biography of the famed aesthete Sir Philip Sassoon – also MP for Folkestone and Hythe, from 1912-1939. A glamorous and pivotal figure in this period, Sassoon hosted legendary parties that brought together the great politicians, artists and thinkers of the autumn days of British imperial power. This is the story of a fascinating man, who Noel Coward called ‘a phenomenon that would never recur’.
