Description
Information
Modernist, romantic, writer, and gardener, Vita Sackville-West was an inspired radical, a woman of the 20th century.

Famed for her passionate relationship with Virginia Woolf, Vita Sackville-West led a life filled with contradiction - controversy and discretion, promiscuity and devotion, selfishness and love.

From her privileged world of the aristocracy, Sackville-West brought her penchant for costume, play-acting and rebellion to the artistic vanguard of modern Britain.

Yet behind this sexual liberalism and high-society glamour was her steadfast, if unorthodox, marriage to Harold Nicolson.

Sustained by their letter writing and enduring love, she became the Rose Queen of England, known nationwide for the gardens she created in Sissinghurst Castle.

From Matthew Dennison, the number one bestselling author of The Last Princess, comes a portrait of the woman who concealed an often troubled persona which heroically resisted compromise on every level.
