"Though Virginia and Vanessa, Clive and Bertie, Bunny and Roger all feature, this is much more than another tribute to the tribe" -- Michael Bird * Daily Telegraph * "Chisholm's masterstoke is to celebrate the letter as artwork... Letters are, of course, a site of aesthetic experiment and creativity, and to view them as such permits the artistry of the fragment to stand, enabling the collage collection to tell other stories of form and function" -- Amber K. Regis * Times Literary Supplement *
Bloggat om Carrington's Letters
Dora Carrington was born in 1893 in Hereford. At seventeen she enrolled at the Slade School of Fine Art, part of an extraordinary generation of painters including Mark Gertler and Paul and John Nash. She painted her friends, her house, her animals, her furniture and designed jackets for books published by Virginia and Leonard Woolf's Hogarth Press. She was the long-time companion of writer Lytton Strachey, though in 1921 she married Ralph Partridge, who joined her and Lytton in a largely harmonious menage a trois. In 1932, after the death of Strachey from cancer, she committed suicide, aged thirty-eight. Anne Chisholm is a biographer and critic who has also worked in journalism and publishing. She has written biographies of Nancy Cunard, which won the Silver PEN Prize for non-fiction, Lord Beaverbrook (with Michael Davie) which was runner-up for the Hawthornden Prize, and, most recently, of the diarist and Bloomsbury insider Frances Partridge, which was shortlisted for the Marsh Biography Award. She is a former chair and now vice president of the Royal Society of Literature.
