Bought 31 December 2006 – Bookends

A joint biography, well done. The two ladies in question revolved on the edge of the Bloomsbury crowd, hence my interest in the work as it fits in with a major collecting policy (apart from Must Buy All The Books In The World). The footnotes explaining all of the subsidiary characters annoyed me a little, but I need to learn that not everyone knows who these people are!

The little glimpses into ?the writer’s life popped between chapters were interesting and offered a commentary on the main work – a little like the multi-layering in Michael Cunningham’s “The Hours”
