Chronicles the author's life in the mid-1960s, when she was struggling to come to terms with existence after the deaths of both her husband Ralph and her son Burgo. Coping with friends and with their daily idiosyncracies, foibles and irritations, is one of the recurring themes of this diary. But it is Frances Partridge's bravery in living that provides the addictive quality. The diary includes travelling through Turkey with Raymond Mortimer, Ireland with Robert Kee, Spain with Gerald Brenan and Sicily with Rosamund Lehmann as well as observations on nature and people.
