About the Author

Danell Jones is a writer and scholar with a PhD in literature from Columbia University. She is the author of The Virginia Woolf Writers' Workshop; the poetry collection 'Desert Elegy'; and 'An African in Imperial London' (also published by Hurst), which won the High Plains Book Award for Nonfiction.


'[A] kaleidoscopic study … [Jones’s] thorough overview of the hoax and its afterlives presents a unique window onto the early 20th-century British empire.'
*Publishers Weekly*

‘Jones introduces many of the extraordinary Black individuals’ resident in the U.K. at the time, including in Woolf’s Bloomsbury, some of whom would go on to play crucial roles in the dismantling of Empire (arguably still ongoing).’
*The New York Journal Review of Books*

‘A fascinating, unnerving, and enlightening perspective on a transformative writer and the society that forged her sensibility, radical creativity, and despair.’

‘The Girl Prince is at its most interesting when Jones draws in the contemporary experiences of black people in Britain.’
*Literary Review*

‘A superb book, splendidly written, deeply researched and richly contextualized.’
*Virginia Woolf Miscellany*

'Deeply researched and marvellously written, this is the book about Bloomsbury and the Dreadnought Hoax that we've been waiting for. Jones gives an essential racial and historical context for the event and its aftermath, which continues to this day.'
*Gretchen Gerzina, author of 'Black England: A Forgotten Georgian History'*

'An enlightening and insightful book that keeps you reading.'
*Remi Adekoya, author of 'Biracial Britain'*

'An enthralling book. Danell Jones at last provides the nuanced context and deep historical research so often lacking in commentary on this infamous incident.'
*Mark Hussey, author of 'Virginia Woolf A–Z' and 'Clive Bell and the Making of Modernism'*
