The Bloomsbury Cookbook: Recipes for Life, Love and Art, Jans Ondaatje Rolls

"The Bloomsbury Group were, among other things, the foodies of their day, their enthusiasm for the heady flavours of southern French cuisine in tune with their love of French art. Now a new book offers a delicious taste of life at their tables"

I saw that on sale at the BM, yesterday! It's interesting and well designed and has GREAT prints and stories. Would have bought it but I literally had NO space left in my bag - already full up with books.

The World Broke in Two: Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster and the Year that Changed Literature

Here's an article I found that might interest you
"Eliot, Woolf and Forster keep coming across each other (Lawrence has to make do with his correspondence with Forster). One weekend in September, there they are together at the Woolfs’ country retreat, Monk’s House in Sussex, discussing Ulysses. Eliot is convinced it is as important as Tolstoy, while Forster (as ever) hesitates, and Woolf is both fascinated and dismissive. Goldstein gives plenty of space to her subsequently embarrassing comments (“An illiterate, underbred book”, “feeble, wordy, uneducated stuff”, and so on), but also notices how Joyce’s magnum opus worries at her. Its evident influence on Mrs Dalloway goes undescribed."
