Simon Callow

Published by Nick Hern Books

When Simon Callow first met Peggy Ramsay he could hardly have suspected that his encounter with the near-legendary play agent would blossom into passionate love

There was the age difference for one thing - Callow was barely 30, Peggy was in her 70s

And then there was the matter of Aziz, the handsome but mercurial Egyptian with whom Callow was already deeply in love ...

For the next eleven years, under Peggy's adoring tutelage, Callow underwent an education of the mind and heart that can have few equals

Peggy imbued him with her philosophy of life and love - and with her conviction of the pre-eminence of art

At the start of the book he was at the start of his career

By the time Peggy died in 1991 - and Callow's account of her death is unbearably moving - he was a household name, but also, thanks to Peggy, an immensely more mature and complex human being

In this extraordinarily revealing memoir, Simon Callow tells the story of their all-consuming absorption in each other, quoting freely from their passionately unbridled letters

He captures the fiery intensity and reckless gestures, the bliss, the tenderness, the anguish of their love

A love which during its compulsive course was to reverberate with tragedy

This unforgettable love story is by turns, inspiring, funny and heartbreaking

It is also a courageously intimate tribute to a remarkable woman
