Orwell and Julia’s relationship had an overture at a Christmas party two years before they actually, truly, met.
Orwell and Julia’s relationship was a classical opera in three parts. Their marriage was a slow movement, their wedding and divorce both lightning fast.
Orwell and Julia did not know they had met before the night they met again, something Orwell was embarrassed over and Julia was traumatized by. They had both been too intoxicated to remember exactly.
It was obvious, how it would go. The friend who introduced them to one another said they had chemistry. What they had was music.
