Publisher's Summary

The subtitle of this wonderful memoir declares its contents: this is 'my life with Harold Pinter', not Lady Antonia Fraser's complete life, and certainly not his.

In essence, this is a love story and, as with many love stories, the beginning and the end, the first light and the twilight, are dealt with more fully than the high noon in between.

The result is a marvellously insightful testimony to modern literature's most celebrated marriage, between the greatest playwright of the age and a beautiful and famous prize-winning biographer.

What the Critics Say

"Antonia Fraser's memoir of her life with Harold Pinter, Must You Go?, is extraordinary by any standards. Based on the diaries she kept during her 33-year relationship with the dramatist, it is simultaneously a love story, an intimate portrait of a great writer and an exercise in self-revelation." (The Guardian)

    "Disappointing"

    i bought this book expecting a love story that would send me back to "the glamourous" era in which they lived (also as a result of an article i read in vogue) but i found it highly disappointing. Antonia has written this book merely as a narration of Pinter's professional life story. The book contains her political opinions which i found disturbing; she throws a lot of insinuations of "fascism" which honestly put me off. i just couldn't take it anymore and I stopped listening. The actual love story is only at the beginning and the rest is their travels and her opinions of the current political climate at the time. Total letdown as it gives the impression that she lives in an ivory tower and has no clue as to what the current world is like.

    I got bored once and tried to commence my listening but it was "pure torture" and had to stop. Someday I will finish it I guess.

    "Must You Go"

    It was just what I needed for a 3 hour flight to Bangalore. Romantic and bit weepy just what I needed. A gentle listen for a long journey (though please don't drive listening to it).
