Mrs. Woolf and the Servants: An Intimate History of Domestic Life in Bloomsbury.
A historian's viewpoint into an aspect of Bloomsbury living that we don't often hear about. The set looked forward to a time when women were liberated, but still lived in a world where maids and cooks took care of them every day. The interesting time between the wars when household chores were increasingly becoming mechanized and women were seeing possibilities to find work other than service. Light has been praised for her poetic writing style. Publ at $30. Bloomsbury Press, NY. 2008. Hb, Dj. NEW. $15.00
