Synopsis: 1990 Charles Scribner hardcover, Lydia Lopokova, John Maynard Keynes (Essays In Persuasion). The surprising courtship correspondence between the eminent Cambridge economist and the Russian ballerina who was to become his wife. The letters date from 1922 to 1925, the years of courtship.

From Publishers Weekly: Russian ballerina Lopokova and gay British economist Keynes seemed, to his Bloomsbury circle, the proverbial odd couple. She, a box-office draw in London during this century's second and third decades, was compared to "the wafting and descending of dandelion down" when dancing with the Ballets Russes company--yet her mischievous merrymaking and apparent lack of intellectualism, in Virginia Woolf's words, "put us all on edge." Keynes, however, found her vivacious, alert and seductive, and gladly fit a passionate romance into the interstices of his influential public life. They married in 1925; the letters collected here by Keynes's niece and nephew span 1922-1925. The appeal of this overly long epistolary affair is almost wholly human interest, not historical; only incidental light is shed on either career. The letters are fond, funny and startlingly undignified, with Lopokova emerging as their star. She signs off as "Your lively vitamin," addresses her gent as "Maynarochka," and indulges in outrageous malapropisms and ticklish misappropriations of English (announcing that, at a performance, "I am going to show my healthy mechanism to the healthy crowd" ).
