Product description


** 'A well written and often touching book (LITERARY REVIEW)

** 'Sophie's story is beautifully and lovingly told by a sympathetic granddaughter whose aim is to coaz the old renegade from the shadows and into the light, revealing her as an extraordinary person whose undoubted gifts were sadly extinguished by conflic (DAILY MAIL)

** 'Robertson is a skilled curater, marshalling the scattered evidence from her grandmother's life into a coherent and absorbing story . . . Robertson has the perfect pitch. She races through the background material, exploring the genuinely remarkable incidents with a keen eye and giving impressively objective analysis. (OBSERVER)

** 'What takes a woman from one extreme to the other makes for fascinating reading. The portrait is also a moving story of a woman's determination to be a free spirit. (METRO LONDON)

Book Description

* Celia Robertson tells the heartfelt and moving story of her grandmother's fascinating journey from published Bloomsbury poet to bag lady through diary extracts, journals and correspondence with Virginia and Leonard Woolf
