A London photographer's model proceeds from an immature marriage into a series of shady affairs-- first with a television talker, then with a slick promotion man, and ultimately in a palazzo as the loveless wife of an Italian prince. After becoming a prisoner of her own success through these disastrous affairs, she realizes the awful price she has paid for happiness.

"There have been Grayles at Hartleap since Canute. They know this and are proud of the fact." "Now they stand in a semi-circle round the bed of the very last of their nannies, who is quietly slipping away. Ada Stephens - known as Nanny Grayle, and well into her nineties - is saying farewell. There they stand, the old, the young, all of them at one time or another 'her' children. In the strange clarity which comes with the last remission, she looks at the saddened faces about her and surprises them all. She says that the most adored of her charges, Rufus, is 'tainted' and that his father, the revered war hero 'Beau' Grayle, was 'wicked'. None of them is going to get anything in her will. She has left everything to her nephew, Robert." "Thus begins the final demolition of a once-proud house. Slowly, from Sunday to Thursday, as they attend to the many small duties that follow death, the unravelling begins, and the family must face the fact that their way of life, and the glory which was Hartleap, will slide into Nanny's grave with her. As the terrible truth becomes known, desperately they try to close ranks..."--BOOK JACKET

Ever, Dirk : the Bogarde letters by Dirk Bogarde ( Book )
5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Dirk Bogarde (1921-1999) was known principally as the star of more than sixty films and a critically acclaimed author. To a privileged few, however, he was a prolific, stimulating and treasured correspondent." "This selection of his letters opens as he and his companion Anthony Forwood start a new life on the Continent, from where Bogarde writes extensively to - among others - the director Joseph Losey, the critic Dilys Powell, the publisher Norah Smallwood, and the authors Penelope Mortimer and Kathleen Tynan. In more than one case, we have an insight into 'a kind of love affair without the carnality' - the description he gave to his epistolary relationship with the American 'Mrs X', which was the basis of his eighth bestseller, A Particular Friendship (1989)." "Collected here, his letters represent an alternative autobiography, covering three decades. On display are the qualities familiar to those who knew the private Bogarde: acute observation, a laser-like intelligence, an easily-provoked waspishness, an aversion to the politically correct, a directness which could wound and offend, a robust compassion for the needy, a relish for the striking metaphor, and a catastrophic disdain for correct spelling and punctuation. As clouds gather over the Provencal idyll, forcing a return to London, his confidences grow more and more poignant. But the incisive humour survives."--BOOK JACKET
