Reviews

...the argument is seemed with brilliant insights, and, if you stay the course, your future visits to Charleston and Monk's House will be immeasurably enriched and your experience of them profoundly altered....and the chapter on the gardens of both houses is sheer heaven.

--Francis Spalding "Canvas"

Hancock's deep affinity with both houses is evident in this compelling and very elegantly written book...(her) experience of these two museum houses, and her own skill as a writer, have resulted in a fascinating book that fuses a loving, lyrical, intimate and subjective response with rigorous, objective, academic analysis and theoretical research. It will appeal to the devotee of the biographies and works of Woolf and Vanessa Bell, the common reader or viewer, and to the scholar engaged in the burgeoning area of material and cultural Museum Studies.

--Marion Dell "Virginia Woolf Bulletin No 42"
