B&W Photographs; 399 pages; Spine creased, covers lightly edgeworn and rubbed, pages lightly soiled.; Biography of Virginia Woolf's sister, a central figure of the Bloomsbury Group. Until this book was published she she was its most elusive member. This biography 'brings her powerful, magnetic personality into clarity, revealing the complex emotions beneath her surface serenity, her gift for the "handling of life" (as Virginia called it) and her lifelong commitment to art. An important part of this biography is devoted to her painting, her harmonious working relationship with Duncan Grant, and their contribution to English art and decoration.'
