In January 2004, where his third volume of Diaries begins, Roy Strong was in a state of deep grief following the death of his wife, Julia Trevelyan Oman, three months earlier. Yet the following years demonstrate his determination, energy and creativity. New ideas for books are brought to fruition, regular forays into the worlds of TV and radio are made, concluding with the Sir Portrait exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery and news of his forthcoming appointment as a Companion of Honour for services to the nation's culture.

Encounters with churchmen, politicians, royalty - and friends old and new - are all described with a telling eye for detail and delicious wit. While there is frustration at the changing world around him, Types and Shadows is a hugely informative and entertaining record of a uniquely full and colourful life.
