Product description


An absorbing and zesty read, both high-minded and full of high gossip. In short, a rare and unexpected treat (Melvyn Bragg)

David Plante is the ideal diarist: he has a fascination with the famous, a relish for anecdote and gossip, an ability to capture people in a few words, and the essential self-awareness . The treat of the year (Spectator Books of the Year)

Sharply observant, drily witty diary (The Times Books of the Year)

Absorbing, illuminating and hugely entertaining . A vivid memorial to an entire era (Times Literary Supplement)

A window onto a changing world ... Powerful as a portrait of mutual love (Guardian)

Book Description

Further adventures in the artistic milieux of the last fifty years, a tale of love, Germaine Greer and, brilliantly, Philip Roth
