Nadia is an old maidish Russian translator in the Foreign Office. She is therefore intimately involved in negotiations over the forthcoming visit of the Soviet President

The English translator for the Russians, Viktor, visits her flat to pick up a copy of a play to see if it is suitable fare for his leader; and we learn to our surprise that the two are ex lovers who once had a torrid affair in New York

Viktor claims he wants to defect and live with Nadia; and she must decide whether he is a devious manipulator trying to use their friendship to further his own political ends or whether he actually does love her

"Ingenious, ironical" ~ London Guardian

"Evokes ripple upon ripple of laughter from its audience" ~ London Sunday Telegraph

"The most touching and sensitive love story of the season" ~ London Daily
