"Poet and novelist Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson, distinguished diplomat, politician, and prolific author, enjoyed one of the most remarkable marriages of the century.

In 1926 Vita Sackville-West travelled to Iran to visit her husband, Harold Nicolson, who was serving as a diplomat in Teheran. Her route was deliberately slow-paced - she stopped in Egypt and India, before sailing across the Persian Gulf to Iraq and on through bandit-infested mountains to Teheran. She returned to England in an equally circuitous manner and, despite travelling under dangerous circumstances through communist Russia and Poland in the midst of revolution, her humour and sense of adventure never failed

In his memoir, British writer, publisher and politician Nigel Nicolson (1917-2004), "unravels the many strings of his utterly unusual and diverse experiences, painting a vivid portrait of a truly fascinating life." Nicolson shares his childhood in the heart of Bloomsbury as the son of Harold Nicolson and Vita Sackville-West. Nicolson obligingly offers up details of his parents' marriage, including both parents' multiple bisexual affairs. He details his publishing career with an account of the publishing house he founded with partner George Weidenfeld and the books they championed. Readers who know him primarily as a war historian will enjoy his reminiscences of his experiences in North Africa and Italy during World War II. Rounding out his life, he was a Member of Parliament in the 1950s. Finally, he describes his home and the world famous gardens he created there
