Product description


Radiantly original ... Irrepressible, with charm and brio to spare, Vanessa and Her Sister boldly invites us to that moment in history when famous minds sparked and collided, shaping the terrain of art and letters ... Prepare to be dazzled * Paula McClain, author of The Paris Wife * With sparkling wit and insight, Priya Parmar sets us down into the legendary Bloomsbury household of the Stephen siblings, where sisters Vanessa and Virginia vie for love and primacy amidst a collection of eccentric guests ... Vanessa and Her Sister kidnapped me for a couple of days. I couldn't put it down * Nancy Horan, author of Loving Frank and Under the Wide and Starry Sky * Vanessa and Her Sister is the novel I didn't know I was waiting for and it is quite simply, astonishing ... Virginia's story is the one most often told, but it is Vanessa - the painter, observer, the woman struggling to balance her marriage and her art under the near-constant gimlet gaze of a younger sister willing to tip that balance - whose story this is. It is beautiful, wise and deft as a stroke upon the canvas * Sarah Blake, author of The Postmistress * The Bloomsbury appeal continues ... Captivating from beginning to end, but Virginia Woolf fans be warned - you might not like what you read' * Vogue *
