Praise
"As richly textured as a novel, and as full of idiosyncracy, pleasure and pathos as real life. The author has done a wonderful job of conjuring, and Dora Carrington's story is vivid and moving."
"A striking biography: moving, thorough, and intelligent. A rare blend of scholarship and compelling narrative."
From the Publisher
Annotation The English painter, known simply as "Carrington"--bohemian, charming, elusive--is the subject of this new biography. Portrayed in novels by Wyndham Lewis, D. H. Lawrence, and Aldous Huxley, she made a vivid impression on those she met. A satellite member of the Bloomsbury Group, she fell hopelessly in love with man of letters, Lytton Strachey and achieved notoriety by killing herself shortly after his death
Editors Note Here is an absorbing biography of the English artist Dora Carrington, who called herself simply 'Carrington.'
