She draws upon intimate records of the thoughts and feelings that they had both expressed in personal diaries, writing with often brutal honesty. Finally she charts the poignant trajectory of Corin’s illness, from the moment he suffered a near-fatal heart attack during a speech on behalf of the Dale Farm gypsies, to severe memory loss, cancer and his eventual death from an aneurysm in the brain.

Throughout these troubled years both continued acting in plays and films, as well as strenuously pursuing the human rights causes they held so dear.Stamped by an unflinching and humane candour... an affecting evocation of love as well as of loss. - The SpectatorRiveting stuff. - Simon Callow, Guardian
