About this title

Synopsis:

Fascination with the Bloomsbury group continues unabated. This famous circle of friends-Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Vanessa Bell, Maynard Keynes, Lytton Strachey, Dora Carrington, Duncan Grant, and others-has become synonymous with devotion to the arts, acerbic wit, liberal ideas, and outrageous sexual frankness. In Bloomsbury at Home, for the first time, readers can experience this group visually-through their paintings, sketches, family photographs, and new photography of their homes and studios.

Pamela Todd takes readers inside this notorious circle of British writers and artists for an intimate look at their private lives, their elaborate parties, and their unconventional homes and domestic arrangements. Using generous quotations from their diaries and letters, Todd re-creates life among this memorable group of individuals who dared to defy the restrictions of polite London society at the turn of the 20th century-and who still arouse interest and curiosity today.

100 illustrations, 80 in full color, 8 1\8 x 10 1/2"

PAMELA TODD began her working life at Punch magazine in England. Throughout her career-as journalist, editor, author, and literary agent-food and art have been recurrent themes. Bloomsbury at Home is her tenth book.

About the Author:

Pamela Todd began her working life at Punch magazine where her duties included reviewing new art exhibitions and old established restaurants. Thus food and art combined at a formative stage. In her subsequent roles as a journalist, editor, author and, for ten years, a literary agent, the combination remained seductive and never far away. Bloomsbury at Home, her tenth book, follows on from the success of The Impressionist's Table, also published by Pavilion.
