Book 3: Diaries 1960-1963.
Frances Partridge was a friend of most of the leading members of the Bloomsbury Group. 'Hanging On' contains her memories of them. She also reflects on her own life, and reveals her private thoughts on the complex relations between herself, Dora Carrington, Lytton Strachey and her beloved husband Ralph.
Her diaries are quietly brilliant. The story of her personal life is absorbing and dramatic. Frances Partridge is a fine translator, a great diarist, a prolific reviewer, a national treasure and to her friends an affectionate companion and great conversationalist, her diaries make riveting reading.
