Love letters: Leonard Woolfe and Trekkie Ritchie Parsons, 1941-1969
Chatto & Windus, May 22, 2001 - Biography & Autobiography - 312 pages
Trekkie Ritchie Parsons, a painter and book illustrator, was married to the publisher Ian Parsons. When she met and fell in love with Leonard Woolf, rather than splitting with Ian, convinced both men that life would be best if Leonard moved in next door. Trekkie spent the weekends with Ian and the week with Leonard, living this way for 25 years. When Trekkie and Leonard were not together they talked through quick letters, which she then sealed up, and were opened after her death. Linked by excerpts from her diary, the letters shine with details of daily life and tell the story of two contrasting personalities, their love for one another, and their unusual and creative domestic arrangement.
