By the 1920s, Virginia Woolf has reached the apex of modern world literature with her landmark novel, Mrs. Dalloway, but nothing seems to soothe the darkness that plagues her. Poems and letters of admiration from Vita Sackville-West lead to a courtship that is hardly concealed from their respective husbands and friends. A daring celebration of an unconventional bond, and a vivid exploration of gender, sexuality, creativity and passion, Vita & Virginia details the love story and the ensuing friendship, which inspired Woolf to write the groundbreaking novel Orlando.
