Vita Sackville-West, novelist, poet, and biographer, is best known as the friend of Virginia Woolf, who transformed her into an androgynous time-traveler in Orlando. The story of Sackville-West's marriage to Harold Nicolson is one of intrigue and bewilderment. Their son, this book's author, combines his mother's memoir with his own explanations and what he learned from their many letters. Even during her various love affairs with women, Vita maintained a loving marriage with Harold. This book presents an often misunderstood but always fascinating couple

"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. Chronicled in the best-selling Portrait of a Marriage by their younger son Nigel Nicolson, the relationship between Vita and Harold was unusual and profoundly happy. Charged with remarkable intensity and deep mutual respect, the correspondence between Vita and Harold, selected by Nigel Nicolson from more than ten thousand surviving letters, uncovers the nature of his parents' marriage against the background of fifty tumultuous years that included both world wars."--Jacket

Passenger to Teheran by V Sackville-West( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the spring of 1926 Vita Sackville-West travelled to Persia to visit her husband, Harold Nicolson, who was at the British Legation, going by way of Egypt, India and Iraq and returning later that year through Russia, newly communist, and revolution-torn Poland. The route was circuitous and the pace leisurely, though not without excitement, and the result is a lively and reflective book of travels. The author begins with the provocative statement that 'there is no greater bore than the travel bore' and then by her own account of the journey disproves it. She is eloquent about her journey and adventures, drawn towards the geographic remoteness and simplicity of life she encounters, but is humorous too, her reactions often less than discreet. Her son, Nigel Nicolson, reveals many personal details of the journey omitted from the original 1926 edition in his engaging introduction to this classic of travel literature. He has also selected the photographs, almost all previously unpublished, from V. Sackville-West's album of her journey. -- Dust jacket flap

The war years, 1939-1945 by Harold George Nicolson( Book )

6 editions published between 1966 and 1967 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To lose his Government post after a scant year and spend the rest of the rest of the war as a backbencher was a grievous trial for Harold Nicolson. Yet it is precisely this middle-distance view that made him a superb recorder of those tumultuous times from 1939 to 1945. In Parliament he had a window on history-in-the-making; elsewhere he found the needed leisure and detachment to collate his thoughts, consider the deeper aspects of what he observed, and predict the future. Ever since 1930, Nicolson had consigned to his journals the rich overflow of a capacious mind, sharply honed by the disciplines of scholar, diplomat and writer. Now, within the context of total war, these diaries became a precious storehouse for heightened emotions and sudden insights, for touching vignettes of Britain under fire and daily barometric readings of hope or despair. Through their pages runs a warm, witty mosaic of casual talk, reflecting his wide interests and immense talent for friendship. Whether chatting with the King and Queen of England, Anthony Eden, Charles de Gaulle, Wendell Willkie, André Maurois, Edouard Benes, Harold Macmillan, Dylan Thomas, Edward R. Murrow, Nancy Astor, Arthur Koestler, or Eve Curie, he always has something of substance to impart, something to crystallize the moment. Even the towering Churchill gains a fresh, human profile made up of many informal meetings. Scattered among the entries is a remarkable series of letters, mostly between Nicolson and his wife Vita, known to many readers as V. Sackville-West. A strong bond had been forged long ago by the dissimilar pair--he convivial, outgoing; she reserved, essentially private--but their strength of affection under pressure is moving indeed. Frequently parted by his busy life in London, each recalls the lethal pill to be used if invasion occurs; each shares anxious moments for two sons in service. Apart from their historic value and elegance of style, these pages portray a British gentlemen who looks for quality in all things and finds his greatest courage when affairs are going badly. Though he is often critical of his peers, no judgment is more searching than that imposed upon himself."--Goodreads.com
