They were strangers and opposites and never met, and yet they enjoyed a passionate and unusual friendship.In 1967 Dirk Bogarde, then at the height of his fame, received a letter from America from a complete stranger who had once lived in his house. Intrigued, he wrote back to her and thus began a flood of correspondence that ended with her death in 1972.Selected from Dirk Bogardes letters, A Particular Friendship reveals the unexpected side of a great actor and film star: a man deeply committed to his home, witty, stringent, observant, sometimes depressed by the state of Britain or of his work but always razor-sharp with his pen. Sprinkled with reminiscences, gossip and cameo portraits of the famous, the letters are a tribute to the relationship between two exceptional people.
