The Letters of Vita Sackville- West Virginia Woolf

"Among the greatest pleasures provided by these two decades of well-edited letters is the chance to recall every love affair’s keenest intoxication — the thrill of hearing the thing you want insisting that you take it." — New York Times Book Review

"A documentary both of an emerging lesbian consciousness and of a turning point in twentieth-century literary history." — Lambda Book Report
