9781903155271: Cheerful Weather for the Wedding

This sardonic and beautifully written novella about a family in Forster territory was first published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press in 1932. 'As delightful and perceptive today as it no doubt was seventy years ago: on her wedding day a girl knows she is about to make a serious mistake' (the Bookseller); 'a brilliant, bittersweet upstairs-downstairs comedy' wrote Shena Mackay in the Guardian. The author was a niece of Lytton Strachey and was well-known in Bloomsbury circles.

About the Author:

Julia Strachey (1901-79) was born in India and lived with relations in England after her parents divorced. She worked as a model at Poiret, as a photographer, and as a publisher's reader. She was married to the sculptor Stephen Tomlin from 1927-34. In 1939 Julia met the art critic Lawrence Gowing, who was twenty-one; the two married after fifteen years. Frances Partridge (1900-2004) was the oldest surviving member of the Bloomsbury Group, having been married to one of its members and counting most of them as her friends. Julia Strachey was one of her oldest friends and she wrote "Julia" a biography. Partridge kept a diary all her life and several volumes have been published by Little Brown.
