Frances Partridge is the last remaining survivor of the legendary Bloomsbury group. She began to publish her diaries at the age of seventy and they were immediately hailed as an unexpected literary event. After many years she has decided to publish the sixth volume of her diaries which follows her life during the years of 1970 and 1971.
She lives and writes with an acute sensitivity to all things in life whether it is the first fall of snow in winter, a close friend caught in a desperate love triangle, a mesmerising performance of an opera, the dazzling wit of a dinner-party companion.
In this diary she travels with friends to Russia to visit Nicholas Henderson, then the British ambassador in Warsaw, to Poland, and to Spain to see Gerald Brenan. Other friends and acquaintances include Janetta and Jaime Parlade, Robert Kee, Dadie Rylands, Heywood Hill, the composer Lennox Berkeley, Cyril Connolly, the Spenders, the Duke of Devonshire, and Michael Holroyd.
