We are excited to show you all the items in the first Book Fairy Box of 2021!
So… what’s in the box?
We are so proud of the book included in this edition of the Book Fairy Box – it’s Love Letters: Vita Woolf and Vita Sackville West from Vintage Books. It’s a truly beautiful, funny and moving collection of personal letters and diary entries following the lives of two very prominent authors.
About Vita and Virginia:
‘I am reduced to a thing that wants Virginia. I composed a beautiful letter to you in the sleepless nightmare hours of the night, and it has all gone. I just miss you…’
At a dinner party in 1922, Virginia Woolf met the renowned author, aristocrat – and sapphist – Vita Sackville-West. Virginia wrote in her diary that she didn’t think much of Vita’s conversation, but she did think very highly of her legs. It was to be the start of almost twenty years of flirtation, friendship, and literary collaboration. Their correspondence ended only with Virginia’s death in 1941.
Intimate and playful, these selected letters and diary entries allow us to hear these women’s constantly changing feelings for each other in their own words. Eavesdrop on the affair that inspired Virginia to write her most fantastical novel, Orlando, and discover a relationship that – even a hundred years later – feels radical and relatable.
