“Now that I have certainly attained the status of Good Red Herring, I may at last be allowed to say: Oh Dear, Oh Dear, how horrid it was being young, and how nice it is being old and not having to mind what people think.” (Gwen Raverat in Period Piece)

It's a fascinating and, of course, unique book. Peter Kettle
The publication of these letters in one volume brings into focus an unusually compassionate aspect of Virginia Woolf. Jacques Raverat's lucid, unsentimental letters to Woolf are dictated to his wife, the artist Gwen, as he is dying in France. Very moving, they are a compelling read.
(Henrietta Garnett, great niece of Virginia Woolf and author of Family Skeletons)
