Virginia Woolf And Vanessa Bell: A Very Close Conspiracy
Virginia Woolf And Vanessa Bell: A Very Close Conspiracy
by Jane Dunn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Virginia and Vanessa., 4 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interesting view of sisters and their relationship. The tortuous Bloomsbury ethics of putting up with and indulging in sexual infidelities as though it were desirable to squash human feelings into oblivion are gone into in some detail alongside the artistic achievements of these two remarkable women.


Life Class: The Selected Memoirs of Diana Athill
Life Class: The Selected Memoirs of Diana Athill
by Diana Athill
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A woman's life : honest reflections., 4 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's interesting to read about the childhood of a woman in an upper middle class household who because of status and money had many privileges. Diana was able to develop from this, to have her own views and a busy fulfilling life, coping with rejection from her boyfriend and working for a living. The part about being old is very brief but seems homest and thoughtful.


Alice Neel: The Art of Not Sitting Pretty
Alice Neel: The Art of Not Sitting Pretty
by Phoebe Hoban
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £25.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Alice Neel, a powerful painter., 4 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very readable biography which reveals Alice Neel as a flawed person with many problems in her life. Shockingly she did not protect one of her sons from ill treatment by a man she lived with for ten years.It was not until her 70's that she gained recognition, helped by the feminist movement despite not being an avowed member. The writer appreciates the paintings perceptively. I would have liked more reproductions of them.

Good value attractive draught excluder. I particularly like the thin rope attachments with a wooden bead by which we can attach the excluder to the door. Also the cover ir removable for washing. Colour is exactly as in the photo and the whole thing seems stoutly robust and well made.

This review is from: Carthage (Paperback)
I thought this was a very good book. It goes from one character's story to another, but not as an affectation to be tricksy, it makes the story compelling. I loved the way it's written, clear, nothing wasted, evocative and involving.
