Other People chronicles Frances Partridge's life in the mid-1960s, when she is still struggling to come to terms with existence after the double blow of the deaths of her husband Ralph and her son Burgo. Coping with friends in extremis, and with their daily idiosyncrasies, foibles and irritations, is one of the recurring themes of this diary. She throws herself into life, indefatigably travelling, endlessly observant of nature and of human beings, pungent in her judgements, relishing conversation, minutely self-aware, passionate for ideas and for her friends.
