Love is Where it Falls: An Account of a Passionate Friendship

by Simon Callow
£12.99   paperback  Nick Hern Books (2006)

Love is Where it Falls: An Account of a Passionate Friendship by Simon Callow When Simon Callow first met Peggy Ramsay he could hardly have suspected that his encounter with the play agent would blossom into passionate love. There was the age difference for one thing: Callow was barely 30, Peggy was in her seventies. And then there was Aziz, the handsome but mercurial Egyptian with whom Callow was already deeply in love.
 
For the next 11 years, until her death in 1991, Peggy and Callow conducted their intense liaison in meetings and passionately unbridled letters.
 
In this revealing memoir, Simon Callow tells the story of their unusual relationship, capturing the fiery intensity and reckless gestures, the bliss and the tenderness, as well as the anguish, of their love.

"This is the story of an unusual love affair - between a writer and his agent... Callow has allowed Peggy to play the leading role in this book and she emerges triumphantly: perceptive, funny, unexpected and passionately devoted to the truth about the art she loved the most."
(John Mortimer, Observer)
