After an introduction by Shelly Kappe, who discusses her long relationship with Dione Neutra, Neutra speaks about her 700 letter-long correspondence with her husband, Richard and her use of this material in her autobiography. She sings folksongs, accompanying herself on the cello, including a piece from Piedmont in Italy, a French pre-revolutionary pastoral, and a Swiss song about calling the cows from the mountains. She discusses her husband’s success and continual lecture tours, but expresses her dissatisfaction with the degree of understanding conveyed by those who invited him.
