Description

Frances Partridge is now recognised as one of the great British diarists of the century. She was part of the Bloomsbury Group, encountering Virginia Woolf, the Bells, Roger Fry and Maynard Keynes. She married Ralph Partridge in 1933. After the war they enjoyed the happiest time of their life together, entertaining friends such as EM Forster, Robert Kee and Duncan Grant. Despite losing both her husband and son, Frances maintained an astonishing appetite for life, whether for her friends, travelling, botany, or music. Her diaries chronicle a remarkable life. Full of an infectious enthusiasm and unending curiosity, they are utterly riveting and rank amongst the greatest diaries of the century.show more
