Mrs. Woolf and the Servants: An Intimate History of Domestic Life in Blooomsbury
This was an excellent biography of Virginia Woolf and her servants. The author seems to have researched many aspects of her subjects thoroughly and well.
The interaction between Virginia Woolf and her servants was fascinating , and gives a new perspective of her, making a subject that's been written about many times fresh and vibrant, giving it new life.
My favorite parts, though, were about Woolf's writing, and how her relationship to her own and other Bloomsbury servants affected it. Sometimes there was even a direct correlation between a real-life servant and a servant in one of Woolf's novels or stories. I adore that kind of insight.
Mrs. Woolf and the Servants gets full marks from me. This is biography at its best.
