In this book the author's recollections about people and places, and also the conversations friends had with each other, continue her earlier Sketches from Memory which were inspired by the suggestion of a friend who knows her well. Her stress is on the rich treasury of stories of human relationships which tend to be swept aside by the historians' concern with specific events and the forces which determine directions of change. The author has chosen an innovative structure in which she presents a gallery of characters who grip the attention of the reader as they come into focus, and moreover, often ethical issues are raised which stimulate deep reflection. The conversations which are recalled in the second part of the book develop these issues further in a vivid dialogue form.
