Om Eleanor Brewers brud med sin mand

“Their conversation, as described by Eleanor herself, is one of the classic exchanges between a cuckold and an adulterer:

Philby: ‘I’ve come to tell you that I’ve had a cable from Eleanor. She has got her divorce and I want you to be the first person to now that I’m going to marry her.’

Brewer: ‘That sounds like the best possible solution. What do you make of the situation in Iraq?'”
