This is an edited collection of love letters written in 1966-67 between Stephen Merrett, a young British academic based in Delhi and Alicia Kaner, an Argentinian student. The couple begin corresponding as friends and the reader is swept along as they flirt, fight and fall in love on the page. The tension of whether their romance will succeed is maintained until the final pages and their letters are a delight to read; witty and perceptive about politics, culture and family life in India, Argentina and Britain.
