Edward Sackville-West

Edward Charles Sackville-West, 5th Baron Sackville was a music critic, novelist and, in his last 3 years, a member of the House of Lords.

Born at Cadogan Gardens, son of Major-General Charles John Sackville-West, who later became the fourth Baron Sackville. Edward was cousin to Vita Sackville-West. He never married and ran what has been described as a male salon, giving weekend parties for friends from the worlds of books and music, of both sexes.
