Life Regained - Diaries, Volume 6, 1970-1972

Author(s): Frances Partridge


Francis Partridge's diaries are the record of a woman who not only participated in the lives of the legendary Bloomsbury group, but was the circle’s oldest surviving member until her death in 2004. In this volume, aged 70, widowed for 10 years, and still mourning the loss of her son Burgo, Partridge still manages to write and live with an extraordinary passion for her friends, traveling abroad, playing in string quartets, walking in the country, and enjoying life in every way. This volume takes her to Russia, Spain, Poland, Tuscany, and France. Partridge lives and writes with an acute sensitivity to all things in life, whether it is the first fall of snow in winter, a desperate love triangle of one of her friends, a mesmerizing performance of an opera, or the dazzling wit of a friend.
