9780712358910: The Charleston Bulletin Supplements

In the summer of 1923 Virginia Woolf's nephews, Quentin and Julian Bell, started a family newspaper, The Charleston Bulletin. Quentin decided to ask his aunt Virginia for a contribution: "it seemed stupid to have a real author so close at hand and not have her contribute." Woolf joined forces with Quentin, and from 1923 until 1927 they created fully-fledged booklets of stories and drawings that were announced as Supplements. Written or dictated by Woolf and illustrated by Quentin, these Supplements present a unique collaboration between the novelist during her most prolific years and the child-painter. In Virginia Woolf, Quentin Bell not only found a professional author and an experienced journalist, but, above all, a close companion and conspirator who shared his irreverence and mischievous sense of humor. The Supplements are transcribed in full here for the first time alongside around 40 of Bell's original illustrations. Designed to tease the adults, they portray Bloomsbury eccentricities along with the foibles and mishaps of the residents and visitors at Charleston. This is the first time the Supplements have been published since they were first written and will therefore be welcomed by fans of Woolf and her circle.

About the Author:

Virginia Woolf is now recognized as a major twentieth-century author, a great novelist and essayist and a key figure in literary history as a feminist and a modernist. Quentin Bell was a painter, sculptor, potter, and art critic, and held chairs in Fine Art and the History of Art at the universities of Leeds, Oxford, and Sussex. Claudia Olk is Chair of English and Comparative Literature at the Freie Universitat Berlin.

Review:

"Good evidence of Woolf's wicked capacity for gossip, parodies and pranks. . . [Woolf in] the 1920s was still a natural satirist, still addicted to the social comedy of families, and still making jokes as an expression of love." —Guardian
