Monica Jones was Philip Larkin's lover and confidant for 40 years until his death in 1985. On her death in 2001, almost 2000 letters, postcards and telegrams came to light. Relaxed, intimate, affectionate and often very funny, they chronicle, day by day, almost every aspect of Larkin's life: his poetry and the events that shaped it, his work as a librarian, his friendships, and his insights on literature, from Hardy and DH Lawrence to WH Auden and Kingsley Amis.
