In this soul-searching ‘record of blundering from shame to shame, ‘ Ackland (19061969), a shy, sensitive English poet and dealer in antiques, writes of her desperately unhappy childhood, emotionally disturbed adolescence and young womanhood, ‘amorous lusts’ and lesbian experiences, disastrous marriage, return to the Catholic church, long struggle to free herself from an addiction to alcohol and, most of all, her 40-year relationship with the novelist, short story writer and music scholar Sylvia Townsend Warner, whom she calls her ‘sun. ‘ Poignant and sometimes painfully frank, this is also an account of joy and happiness and of the power and truth of her life with Townsend Warner.
