Vanessa and Her Sister by Priya ParmarWhy read a novel about the Bloomsbury set when they wrote so assiduously about themselves? A torrent of letters, diaries and memoirs lays bare the lives of Ottoline , Duncan , Leonard , Lytton , Roger and the others who flit through these pages. Then there are the biographies, studies and style guides: Bloomsbury gardens, servants, food and decor, exhaustively detailed down to the last chamber pot, dish or daub. What more is there to say? There can be no suspense, at least for Bloomsbury aficionados and who else would read this?
