This has been breaking my heart for about thirty years. Probably further back, before it existed, when it was just the book, and Winston and Julia in the cafe, broken, strangers to each other, all covenants shattered, strangers, lost, all meaning and love wiped away, reversed, rewritten as nothingness, as though it never happened, or worse. It was a nightmare when I first read it, and it is still.
