Abstract:

When Simon Callow, the celebrated stage and screen star, first met Margaret Ramsay in 1980, he could hardly have suspected that his encounter with the world-famous theatrical agent would blossom into a most improbable love affair.There was age, for one thing: Callow was barely thirty; Ramsay was seventy. Also, Callow, a homosexual, was in the midst of an all-consuming affair with his Egyptian-Turkish boyfriend, Aziz Yehia. For the next eleven years, until her death in 1991, Callow and Ramsay conducted an intense, exhilarating liaison in meetings and letters, exchanging intimacies charged with the fervor of trembling emotion. In this extraordinary memoir, Callow tells the story of their unusual relationship in a book that captures the fiery intensity and reckless gestures, the bliss, tenderness, and grace, as well as the anguish, of overwhelming love in its compulsive course with a sense of intimacy so overpowering that the reader feels privileged to be allowed to trespass on such personal pleasure and pain.
