Summary When Ida Nettleship married Augustus John in 1901 it was against the wishes of her parents. But Ida was in love with this flamboyant and charismatic man who would become one of the most famous artists of his time. A naturally gifted writer, it is with a candour and social intelligence extraordinary for a woman of her period that Ida opens up her world, revealing her anguish when Augustus falls in love with another woman and her courage in deciding to live in a ménage á trois.
