Although the Apostles were going long before 1910, the people we are interested in were studying at Cambridge around this time and just before. Although Virginia died in 1941, and many of old Bloomsbury had also gone by them, some were still alive and prospering, if not thinking of themselves in the same way.

I am reading a wonderful book entitled Bloomsbury: A House of Lions by Leon Edel. It is written in a chapter style with each chapter being about 1 of "them" and it is basically on the original nine. I am just reading bits of it at a time between my other reads but finding it quite good.

Bloomsbury: A House of Lions is an excellent read!

Meanwhile, two other readers also have had Henry languishing on their TBR shelves for decades and have joined me reading it. It is delightful and fascinating, I don't know why I put off reading it:

Yes, agree , It's a very good book. Finished it not to long ago and think it would a good starter for stepping into Bloomsbury.

I agree. It is very well done. Short, concise chapters. I am liking it a lot.
