First published in 1989, A Particular Friendship follows Dirk Bogarde's first four memoirs

This epistolary collection finds Bogarde at his most honest and touching, engaging in conversation with a woman he has never met, and whose only interest in him comes from the simple fact that he now happens to live in a house that she once owned.
These letters provide an insight into the wit and intelligence of a great man without the stifling constraints of other literary forms. it presents us with a platform and a relationship that allowed Bogarde to freely reminisce, discuss politics, and gossip about those around him.
The correspondences were all written before Bogarde saw himself as an author and stand as a testament to his literary talent, domestic sensibilities, and his unquestionable compassion in sharing so much with a complete stranger.
