Summary
"During the almost six years England was at war with Nazi Germany, Winifred and Bernard Schlesinger, ... film director John Schlesinger's parents, were ... thoroughly sundered from each other. Their only recourse was to write letters back and forth. And write they did ... In a way they were just picking up where they left off in 1918, at the end of their first long separation because of the Great War that swept Bernard away to some of Europe's bloodiest battlefields. The thousands of letters between them were part of an inheritance that ultimately came into the hands of their grandson ... Ian Buruma has woven his own voice in with theirs to provide the context and counterpoint necessary to bring to life not just a remarkable marriage, but a class and an age"--Provided by publisher
