The Perfect Stranger was first published in the sixties and since then has continued to find a select group of passionate admirers. Now reissued and beautifully repackaged this extremely funny but brutally moving story of a soldier, a poet and a man in love will find a new generation of readers.
The author describes it as the story of a rescue. Michael Frayn describes it as a memorial to ‘youth and love’, Richard Ingrams says ‘It was one of the best memoirs I have read’ and David Nicholls writes, ‘A wise, sad, wonderfully written memoir that’s ripe for rediscovery.’
