I just finished Vanessa and Her Sister. I thought it was informed and convincing. And—for Woolfians, at least—a page-turner. Parmar does Vanessa’s point of view with great persuasiveness, turning the familiar story of early Bloomsbury into something we haven’t seen and perhaps have never considered. Parmar does make Vanessa a somewhat better writer than she appears to be from her letters, more like her sister, but she also enters into Vanessa’s enormous visual pleasure and delight in rendering the visual on canvas.
