Must You Go?

Genre: Memoir, Nonfiction; Author: Antonia Fraser; Publisher: Nan A. Talese

Must You Go?, the title of Antonia Fraser?s bold, intimate, madly entertaining memoir of the years with her late husband Harold Pinter refers to the life-changing question posed to the author by the esteemed British playwright at a dinner party in 1975. At the time, the politically outspoken Pinter was married and the father of one; the elegant Fraser, the daughter of an earl, was a prolific writer specializing in English royal biographies, married to a Tory MP, and the mother of six. Their (once scandalous) 33-year love affair lasted until Pinter?s death in 2008.
