Hey David,
Yes Prosperos Cell was written in the tower of the
Ambron Villa with Eve sitting at his feet.
It was written from notes taken on Corfu. "N." may
just have been a delicate way of treating the
matter, or maybe it was "hurt" as she had left
him, not the other way around. There is a difference.

A good point Marc - but he uses the same formula in Reflections on a Marine 
Venus which was first published in 1953. Does this also reflect the state of 
his relationship with Eve - which was definately pear shaped by then - or 
something else, a literary devise to protect his 'real' characters or at 
least his early wives? Does Claude ever appear as C?
