Walpole, Hugh, Sir: The Secret City. v1. 14 Jan 2014

Sir Hugh Seymour Walpole, CBE (13 March 1884 – 1 June 1941) was a New Zealand–born English novelist. He was the son of an Anglican clergyman, intended for a career in the church but drawn instead to writing. Among those who encouraged him were the authors Henry James and Arnold Bennett. His skill at scene-setting, vivid plots, and high profile as a lecturer brought him a large readership in the United Kingdom and North America. He was a best-selling author in the 1920s and 1930s, but has been largely neglected since his death.

Excerpt
"One's private life is always with one..... it is a secret city in which one must always live, and whose gates one will never pass through, whatever may be going on in the world outside."
The characters in this novel get their lives all tangled up with the Russian Revolution, which becomes almost incidental to what goes on between them.
