Sample text

Celia was a poet, and also what we now call a groupie. Writers were her speciality. She had been the mistress of the German novelist Robert Neumann and of the black American writer Richard Wright. Neumann she met in Berlin and Wright, in Paris. She had joined the American occupation army after the war and later worked for Henry Kissinger. He, apparently, was one of the few men who were sexually unmoved by Celia. She was also bisexual and had affairs with women, although emotionally she was focussed on men.

Although he was neither an intellectual nor writer Celia was hopelessly, helplessly in love with him. Bill, who was a lovely man, made a fortune from Red Tulip chocolates. He died in his early sixties from a heart attack, leaving Celia devastated. She has mourned him ever since. Celia was a terrible snob and loathed travelling tourist class.

Later she told me her name was Anthea. A WEEK BEFORE 50 Art & Life Her voice was low and thrilling.
