In the final year of his life Cecil Beaton chose a young Hugo Vickers to write his official biography. Vickers spent five years with Beaton's diaries, letters, scrapbooks and friends. The result is the definitive work on the artist, republished now to coincide with the Cecil Beaton's Bright Young Things exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
