Description

Virginia Woolf was a feminist and a bohemian but without her servants – cooking, cleaning and keeping house – she might never have managed to write.

Mrs Woolf and The Servants explores the hidden history of service. Through Virginia Woolf’s extensive diaries and letters and brilliant detective work, Alison Light chronicles the lives of those forgotten women who worked behind the scenes in Bloomsbury, and their fraught relations with one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers.
