After they met in 1922, Vita Sackville-West, a British novelist married to diplomat Harold Nicolson, and Virginia Woolf began an intense and passionate relationship that lasted until Woolf’s death in 1941.

This edition includes over 500 letters spanning 20 years; features 25 photographs, eight new to this edition; and has a new introduction and bibliography.
