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. Other People chronicles Frances' life in the mid-1960s, when she is still struggling to come to terms with existence after the double blow of the deaths of her husband Ralph and her son Burgo. Coping with friends in extremis, and with their daily idiosyncrasies, foibles, and irritations, is one of the recurring themes of this diary. She throws herself into life, indefatigably travelling, endlessly observant of nature and of human beings, pungent in her judgements, relishing conversation, minutely self-aware, and passionate for ideas and for her friends.
