So, lovers dream a rich and long delight, But get a winter-seeming summer’s night

So, lovers dream a rich and long delight, But get a winter-seeming summer’s night. In my partial autobiography, The Early Years of Alec Waugh, I told how in February 1927 on a liner sailing from Tahiti to San Francisco, I fell in love with an American, Ruth―, who was married to a rich and prominent man very much older than herself. It was from the start an impossible situation, and in several of my novels I have written of a couple who feel themselves born for one another yet are not free to marry.

So Lovers Dream - Alec Waugh. As long as we had enough sterling to see us over the next two weeks we could live as unconcernedly as Englishmen had always done on the Riviera since Lord Brougham, nearly a hundred years before, had discovered the charms of Cannes. The Riviera has never been quite the same again. For me So Lovers Dream makes nostalgic reading-because of Ruth, because of the New York of 1930-1931, and because of the Villefranche where Cocteau, Scott Fitzgerald, Glenway Westcott and so many others loitered in the later twenties.

A rich tale centred around the lives of Marjorie Fairfield, a beautiful and penniless young woman who is the mistress of a wealthy business man; and the symbolically named Ransom Heritage, one of the many young men who were cast adrift after the First World War ended and who has been abruptly deprived of a sense of purpose, ambition and hope.
