Bloomsbury blushes : an old lady's tale,
This review is from: The Unspoken Truth (Hardcover)
This quartet, three slight, one novella refreshes the delirium that was Bloomsbury, that mythical land of liberal and inventive artists living a dream in gardens beneath shaded trees, in Parisian garrets, loving and behaving like none before.
Angelica's memories are in tune with the times and though she helps along the mythology grown up around this "privileged" lot she can only add to its charm and nostalgia. We shall not see the like of them again and these little pieces are tantalisingly brief, the novella rich in language and desire.
A lovely find and highly recommended

Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell never lived in any sort of garret!, they came from a rich and privileged family plus Clive Bell also a very wealthy man.
