Violet Trefusis provided a view from the third side of this romantic (and literary) triangle in this novel, first published (in French) in 1935. In this delightful roman a clef, written as a drawing room comedy that unfolds during a single afternoon, the relationships among these three women are freshly illuminated. ' With a new introduction by Victoria Glendinning.
