Edith Sitwell

I am delighted to see that there is a new book about Edith Sitwell. I have long based my hairstyles on those of the Uncrowned Queen of Dada, and I love her deconstruction of pompousness.
She inhabits the same world as Ivor Cutler, and you have to have been brought up in a world of senseless ritual to be truly able to understand their rickety rhythms and worlds of barmy logic.
