Om Permission to Resign
Anne Bridge, much beloved author of many works of fiction, focuses here on a point in her life that very nearly ruined her husband, and the prospects of her entire family. Whilst away with her ailing son in Switzerland, Bridge learns that her husband is not only to lose his position with the Diplomatic Service, but will also be leaving with his good name in tatters. This blow is all the more troubling because it was completely unexpected the result of what Anne thought a minor transgression perpetrated four years previously and she must rally herself in order to deal with the practical implications of such a change of fortune. But Anne Bridge is not a woman to sit by and meekly accept such an injustice. Within two weeks she is back in London, fighting tooth and nail to clear her husband's name. This fascinating retelling of true events through letters, telegrams and her own account written in 1928, the year of the debacle, offers a glimpse into the normally closed world of the British Government. Permission to Resign was first published in 1971.
