“As richly textured as a novel, and as full of idiosyncrasy, pleasure, and pathos as real life. The author has done a wonderful job of conjuring, and Dora Carrington’s story is vivid and moving.” ―Meg Wolitzer

Here is an absorbing biography of the English artist Dora Carrington, who called herself simply "Carrington". She was a woman who made a vivid impression on those she met―she was portrayed (or caricatured), for example, in novels by Wyndham Lewis, D. H. Lawrence, and Aldous Huxley. Hopelessly in love with the noted writer Lytton Strachey, she achieved notoriety by killing herself shortly after his death. A talented painter, living a bohemian life, Carrington was torn by conflicts as an artist and a woman, including the shrewd and inquisitive Bloomsbury group. Carrington’s paintings, however, reveal much of her remarkable and original cast of mind, and since her death her reputation as an artist has grown steadily. Her work is new represented in major collections worldwide.

Review:
This absorbing biography of Dora Carrington, the Bloomsbury artist who lived with the noted writer Lytton Strachey, is the basis for the movie starring Emma Thompson. It is a fascinating portrait of a highly individualistic woman and her many remarkable friendships, illustrated with numerous photographs and sketches.
From the Back Cover:
Here is an absorbing biography of the English artist Dora Carrington, who called herself simply 'Carrington.'
