This book examines the creative intimacy between Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf, interpreting both their relationship and their work in the light of their experience as married lesbians. The contradictions and conflicts of their situation are worked out through the construction of different narratives of femininity, in letters, novels, diaries, and other texts. Vita and Virginia looks at the two women's continual renegotiation of what it means to be female, and suggests that the mutual exchange of different versions of "womanhood" is crucial to the development of their friendship. Orlando, for example, was Virginia Woolf's way of threatening Sackville-West with the extent of her own knowledge about her, as well as the celebratory love-letter it is usually assumed to be. The book also offers readings of both women's autobiographical texts, and a long-overdue study of Vita Sackville-West's work as a biographer and a novelist. Emphasizing also wider contexts, this study examines the links between homosexual desire and literary innovation, public politics and private lives. It provides an invaluable perspective on the relations between sexuality and feminism in modernism.

When Virginia Woolf first met Vita Sackville-West at Clive Bell's home in 1922, she wrote that Vita made her feel 'virgin, shy, & schoolgirlish'. But over the next three years Vita charmed away her shyness, and at the end of 1925 made Virginia her lover

Might have to read it again. Was very much interested in this book and at the end the feeling I got was, Is this all? It has very good parts, things pointed out that make sense but it goes so deep into what sexual behavoir means and could have meant then that one gets a bit lost, it doesnt get to the point regarding Vita and Virginia in that it explains in a very intelectual (and a bit boring)way what was going on then...To one who has read virginia and vita (books, essays, letters (to each other and to others)it doesnt show anything new, no new insights into her relationship...The book centers on Vita much more than on Virginia and not enough on their relationship... but now that I write about it I feel that I might need to read it again...It is not bad (not at all) but It was not what I expected it.
