T. S. Eliot and Mary Trevelyan shared a close friendship – twenty-five years in each others’ company: playing records; going for drives with Mary at the wheel; sharing dinners Eliot cooked in his rolled-up shirtsleeves; and attending church together.

While Mary hoped it might become something more, the poet’s heart was elsewhere. Using a collection of diaries, letters and pictures Mary left behind, Erica Wagner brings together this story of an unusual friendship in this intimate portrait of T. S. Eliot and Mary, a formidable woman thus far sidelined by literary history.

‘Completely fascinating, revelatory . . . A classic of its kind.’ William Boyd

‘Compelling . . . compulsive.’ Margaret Drabble
