The subtitle of this wonderful memoir declares its contents: this is 'my life with Harold Pinter', not Lady Antonia Fraser's complete life, and certainly not his.
In essence, this is a love story and, as with many love stories, the beginning and the end, the first light and the twilight, are dealt with more fully than the high noon in between.
The result is a marvellously insightful testimony to modern literature's most celebrated marriage, between the greatest playwright of the age and a beautiful and famous prize-winning biographer.
"Antonia Fraser's memoir of her life with Harold Pinter, Must You Go?, is extraordinary by any standards. Based on the diaries she kept during her 33-year relationship with the dramatist, it is simultaneously a love story, an intimate portrait of a great writer and an exercise in self-revelation."

Disappointing on several levels
Yes because I think when she is not writing about herself she is a reasonable writer. Lindsay Duncan's rendition was excellent, just a pity about the content.
Possibly nothing, it is the tale of an egotistical person who was content to grab her own happiness at the expense of that of other people around her. I found it hard to care about her although I did feel deeply for the casualties she scattered about her. What an awful woman.
Absolutely not, please please spare us.
I am interested in Mr Pinter, I am assuredly not interested in this awful woman. I wish I had not bothered.
