When Frances and Ralph Partridge had fallen in love, he already had a wife in Dora Carrington. She had married him to keep close at hand the person on whom Lytton Strachey – Carrington's real love – had come to depend. From the start, it was evident that Frances Partridge's diary upheld the Bloomsbury habit of analysing her own and others' behaviour. Since then, at intervals, she has gone to the old French wardrobe where she keeps her archives and resurrected more of her past. As she reached her 100th year, failing eyesight began to make revisions difficult.
