THE DAIRIES OF KENNETH TYNAN - Kenneth Tynan
Wonderfully indiscreet diary from Tynan.
This has everything that a published diary should have, lots of good gossip and humour. The JFK - Greta Garbo story again exemplifies what a loathsome person Kennedy was.
Tynan was also heavily into S and M and liked to spank women on the bottom, his wife wasn't keen on this so he had an extra one for this carry on.
One other strange thing that really stood out was that he was always broke but never seemed to have any trouble flitting across the Atlantic at the drop of a hat. Obviously his definition of broke and mine bear no relation to each other.
As a diary this is highly recommended, great entertainment.
