As a young woman, Diana Athill was engaged to an air force pilot--Instead of a Letter tells how he broke off the engagement, married someone else, and, worst of all, died overseas before she could confront or forgive him. Evoking perfectly the picturesque country setting of her youth, this fearless and profoundly honest story of love and modern womanhood marks the beginning of Athill's brilliant literary career.

Another author working through their childhood, career and love life angst. I kept looking for a reason to keep reading this book. The language is very scholarly and difficult. Loaded with run-on sentences.
