Antonia Fraser rediscovered her diary of a trip to Israel in 1978 with Harold Pinter when writing her portrait of their life together, Must You Go?  It is a quirky and charming record of a time, a place and two people, one a Catholic, one rediscovering his Jewishness. In the “brilliant hard sunshine” that May they walked amidst rich history and met men of the moment like Shimon Peres. This vivid and very private diary is full of a warm, understated humour and tenderness we can now all enjoy. 


Lady Antonia will be joined by broadcaster and author, Mark Lawson, whose most recent novel, The Allegations, was released last year.
