If your new to the Bloomsbury Group this is a good start as it gives a well depicated social & cultural view of each member up to adulthood . Easy reading and holds interest

Much more than mere character sketches of THE proto-counter-culture, it's an intriguing examination of a high-gain artistic mileau.
