Why We Love This

Portrait of a Marriage by Nigel Nicolson. London: Weidenfeld Nicolson, 1973. First printing. Vita Sackville-West's writings about her lovers outside her ultimately successful marriage to diplomat Harold Nicolson have been presented, with contemporary diaries and letters, by their son Nigel. He explains his parents' unusual alliance and the belief that later generations would look on their scandalous passions with a kindlier eye. Fine book in good dust jacket, with chip to corner.
