With Old Acquaintance (1962) David Stacton embarked upon his third literary triptych, this one on the theme of 'The Sexes'. 'Even in these one-worldly days of cultural colonies and jet-setters, most US authors trying to depict European sophistication seem indefinably out of their league, like children sashaying around in grown-up shoes. Not so David Stacton, who here recounts with relish and delight a nostalgic encounter between two Old World celebrities at an international film festival.' Time 'The old acquaintances are Charlie, a successful novelist with four wives and a succession of young men in his past, and Lotte, a German singer and movie star, now American. Their acquaintanceship dates back thirty years to their youth in Berlin... David Stacton has a spectacular, erudite way with the fun and games...' Kirkus Reviews
