    DescriptionHere the Bloomsbury story is told in seven broadly chronological chapters, beginning in the 1890s and finishing in the very recent past. The Bloomsbury Group fostered a fresh, creative and vital way of living that encouraged debate and communication (only connect), as often as not across the dining table. Gathered at these tables were many of the great figures in art, literature and economics in the early twentieth century: E. M. Forster, Roger Fry, J. M. Keynes, Lytton Strachey and Virginia Woolf, among many others. Each chapter comprises a series of narratives, many of which are enhanced with an appropriate recipe, along with sketches, paintings, photographs, letters and handwritten notes, and featuring original quotations throughout. Part cookbook, part social and cultural history, this book will appeal to lovers of food and lovers of literature alike.
