Tells the story, via the letters that the two characters wrote to each other, of the relationship between Evelyn Waugh, author of "Brideshead Revisited", and Lady Diana Cooper, actress and hostess. The two endearments of Mr Wu and Mrs Stitch were used in the correspondence for over 30 years. His letters had originally thought to be lost until 20 years after his death in 1966 they surfaced in somewhat mysterious circumstances. When the correspondence opens he was 20 and she was not quite 40. He was restless and impatient. She was a daughter of the eight Duke of Rutland, an actress who married a rising politician, Duff Cooper. The editor of these letters is the granddaughter of Lady Diana Cooper and she argues that the correspondents demanded the best from each other and that neither were afraid of expressing their opinions and feelings. Other books by this writer include "Cairo in the War, 1939-45", "The Diana Cooper Scrapbook" and "A Durable Fire: The Letters of Duff and Diana Cooper".
