With their wild Bohemian exploits and exceptional artistic talent, the lives of the infamous Bloomsbury Set have long captured the imagination of the public.
Equally as legendary for their scandalous affairs and progressive attitudes as they were for their groundbreaking contributions to art, literature, and philosophy, it is perhaps Bloomsbury’s female members that are the most revered.
From Virginia Woolf and her artist sister Vanessa Bell to the poets Vita Sackville-West and Katherine Mansfield, the Bloomsbury women left extensive letters, diaries and memoirs providing vivid accounts of friendship, love, art, gossip, jealousy and death that occupied their fascinating lives.
This captivating book traces the Bloomsbury Group from its beginning in the early years of the 20th Century to the old age of its founders and their undying legacy. Shining a new light on the group and its female protagonists, Jan Marsh presents the true story of an extraordinary group of women.
