Taking family, friends, and servants as her subjects, Virginia Woolf presents a series of impressions of the people around her. As she describes their lives—including an in-depth piece on her nephew Julian Bell and sketches on Bloomsbury figures Lady Ottoline Morrell and Lady Strachey—she also reveals much about her own attitudes on the War, her writing, and education. The result is a fascinating and revealing work that will crucially augment what is currently available of her biographical writings.
