Well, that will teach me to read the foreword. The book mirrors the passion between Vita Sackville West and her childhood friend Violet Keppel, so I was waiting for passion and scandal. Which happens mostly in the last 100 pgs.
Actually the last 20 are really intense. I can't help thinking that Eve, the heroin, is a pain. She is so jealous she is even jealous of her lover's ideals. He should only think of her.
But it was a bit hard for me to read, the style is a bit old fashioned and the print very small.
