This is a study of the close relationship between Virginia Woolf and her sister, Vanessa Bell. It uncovers a remarkable creative relationship, sustained by tensions caused by both proximity and distance, supporting Woolf's confession that she wrote more for her sister than for anyone.

From Library Journal:

$32.50. lit This cross-disciplinary investigation into two of the Bloomsbury elite has its high and low points. Inevitably, it says more about Woolfabout whom plenty has been saidthan Bell, and there is a hyper-literary tendency to treat Bell's artwork (most plates not seen) as "text." Because of the diverse genres, there is need for a lot of explication, so at times description overwhelms argument. Also, a biographical slant produces sisterly interplay that can be tedious. That said, there is much of interest here on the painterly aspects of Woolf's writing, on Modernism, and on the complex relationship between written and visual arts. It will hold automatic appeal for fans/students of Bloomsbury. Robert E. Brown, Onondaga Cty. P.L., Syracuse,
