Must You Go? by Antonia Fraser
The love story between this couple was wonderfully romantic and they were destined to be together, however, I did get the feeling that Lady Antonia regarded Vivian (Pinter's wife) as rather a nuisance and she didn't see her side of it at all. Vivian got her own back by saying that if Harold needed a pair of shoes he could always wear Fraser's because her feet were so big!
This book was a delight to read with interesting snippets about Pinter's plays and Lady Antonia's biographies and their travels together. It also has a lot of details about Pinter's very left-wing politics and protests. Be warned that the account of Pinter's illness is extremely sad and harrowing.
Is she still one of my heroines? I still greatly admire her, so yes, she is.
