ABOUT THE BOOK AND AUTHOR

Also available as an e-book and Print-on-Demand (POD) from Amazon.

GARSINGTON REVISITED by Sandra J. Darroch is a revised and updated edition of her original biography of Ottoline published by Chatto & Windus in 1976, and later in paperback by Cassell.  As well as being updated, the new book contains hitherto unpublished information about “the skeletons in Ottoline’s cupboard”, as Bloomsbury identity David Garnett called them. The book also has a selection of vignettes or Interludes about the extraordinary people Sandra met and interviewed, including the last surviving members of the Bloomsbury Group.

After reading a preview copy of Garsington Revisited, the eminent biographer Sir Michael Holroyd wrote: "It's a book of real originality.  All I can say is that it deserves both hands a ‘Thumbs up!’.  With many congratulations, Michael."

THE LONDON LAUNCH OF GARSINGTON REVISITED


The book was launched in London on July 11 in an elegant reception room in William Goodenough House in Bloomsbury, not far from Ottoline's forermer residence in Bedford Square.

A week earluer, Sandra Darroch had delivered the opening talk at the 14th International D.H. Lawrence Conferene held in Bedford Square, where she described how Ottoline introduced Lawrence to London's literary society in 1916. Lawrence became a close friend but later caricatured her unkindly as Hrmione Roddice in his novel Women in Love.
