c'est ici

En voici le début :

IT’S ONE OF MANY similar parties held at Drayton Gardens, South Kensington during the 1960s and 1970s. The large family house is fantastic. Everything in it seems animated. There are murals, painted screens, stuffed birds. Even the artist’s dummies are dressed for the occasion. Candles and soft lamps illumate the house from basement to top floors. They cast lively shadows. There are bursts of laughter. Music everywhere. Light classical here, modern jazz there, a bit of Beatles, some R&B. On the stairs sits a melancholy John Braine, author of Room At The Top, squirming with distaste when advanced upon by a riotous Quentin Crisp in all his flouncing glory, while intense art critics in Carnaby Street suits exchange enthusiasms over firmly gripped wine glasses. Pretty young actresses talk about lost, found or potential jobs while long-haired young writers pass a joint and marvel at the painted walls.
