Portrait of a Marriage

Sir Harold Nicolson "was variously an acquaintance, associate, friend, or intimate to such figures as Ramsay MacDonald, David Lloyd George, Duff Cooper, Charles de Gaulle, Anthony Eden and Winston Churchill, along with a host of literary and artistic figures." (Harold Nicolson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Harold Nicolson's son Nigel Nicolson wrote "Portrait of a Marriage".

This book describes the marriage of Nigel's parents, writer Vita Sackville-West and diplomat-politician Harold Nicolson.

Reportedly, both Nigel and his father Harold had a gay relationship with James Pope- Hennessy. (Tatler)

After Nigel's parents died Nigel found a diary containing an autobiographical account of Vita's affair with Violet Trefusis. Vita also had an affair with Virginia Wolf and others.
