Bell offers remarkable judgments about and recollections of each of the notable people among whom he came of age." "Here are Bell's candid portraits of his parents, Clive and Vanessa Bell - Virginia Woolf's sister - Vanessa's lover, Duncan Grant, and of Virginia Woolf, Lytton Strachey, E.M. Forster, John Maynard Keynes, Roger Fry, Ottoline Morrell, and others who frequented Gordon Square in Bloomsbury and Charleston, the Bells' country place in Sussex." "The stories of this enchanting extended family, the private lives of these public figures, have all the magic and intrigue of the best novels of the day. Bloomsbury Recalled, in the expansive storytelling tradition of the early modernists, re-creates the captivating theater of events that was Bloomsbury."--Jacket."
