These 600 letters of Leonard Woolf begin in 1901 during his undergraduate years and end in 1969, shortly before his death. Although he has been overshadowed by worldwide fascination with his wife, Virginia, his no less interesting and varied career merits attention in its own right. His correspondents range from Lytton Strachey, T.S. Eliot, C. Day-Lewis, Peggy Ashcroft and Sylvia Townsend Warner to Beatrice and Sydney Webb, Sigmund and Anna Freud, John Maynard Keynes, G.E. Moore and H.G. Wells. The book contains every letter to Virginia Woolf, as well as exchanges with doctors concerning her mental illness and suicide. The letters show him as a man who worked all his professional life for a democratic socialist society, decolonization, racial and sexual equality and the establishment of a peaceful international order.
