'This lightly annotated volume of selected writings...is intended to acquaint the contemporary reader with the range of Sackville-West's literary talents.' - Publishers Weekly '...a complex and compelling portrait of Sackville-West emerges...' - J.E. Steiner, Choice 'Caws sees the interesting contradictions in Vita's life and writing - at once nonconformist and traditional, 'adventuresome' and reclusive, sexually faithless and maritally loyal, unconventional and immensley snobbish.' - Hermione Lee, The Guardian
