2017-2018 Sibling Rivalries

Vanessa and her sister / Priya Parmar

 In this novel author Priya Parmar creates a fictionalized account of the complicated relationship shared by Virginia Stephen Woolf and her sister, Vanessa Stephen Bell. Told through a series of diary entries and letters, the novel explores the admiration, jealousy, and devotion that defined Virginia and Vanessa's relationship. Virginia, a writer, and Vanessa, a painter, are founding members of the Bloomsbury group. Born in the early 20th century, the London-based group brings together men and women who share a passion for art, social experimentation, and a bohemian lifestyle. But even in this free-spirited atmosphere, Virginia struggles with the complex feelings she has for Vanessa. In addition to professional jealousies, Virginia also possesses a fierce love for Vanessa that is aggravated by mental health issues. Parmar follows the Stephen sisters as Vanessa marries and becomes a mother, and Virginia eventually finds a husband in Leonard Woolf. Books & Authors
