Vita : The Life of Vita Sackville-West, Paperback / softback Book

Vita : The Life of Vita Sackville-West Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Vita Sackville-West was a vital, gifted and complex woman.

A dedicated writer, she made her mark as poet, novelist, biographer, travel writer, journalist and broadcaster.

She was also one of the most influential English gardeners of the century, creating with her husband the famous gardens at Sissinghurst.

In her Whitbread Prize-winning biography, Glendinning documents Vita's extraordinary life, focusing on her relationships with Violet Trefusis, Virginia Woolf, her husband, and her two sons together with her unpublicised love affairs.

Vita was determined to be more than just a married woman and mother; her passionate, secretive character, and the strains, mistakes and achievements of her remarkable life makes this an absorbing and disturbing book.
