  • Finished reading Frances Partridge the Biography Anne Chisholm 26 Nov 2016ISBN 9780753826997One of the best written biographies I ve ever read A wealth of information, but bringing someone to life rather than reading from a fact sheet The knack of giving a number of quite varied bits of information then giving one item in considerable detail relatively speaking worked excellently for me as a device for advancing the narrative and rounding out the person of Frances Partridge.Frances Partridge wa [...]


  • The life of the last surviving member of the Bloomsbury group Not that Frances was fully Bloomsbury she worked on the fringes But the group and its ethos about which Chisholm writes clearly and competently certainly made its mark on her the love of friends over family, the importance of penetrating and thoughtful talk and always choosing love over duty, were all things FP lived by She was a solid character She showed it in her steadfastness to husband Ralph despite his numerous affairs all menti [...]


  • Enjoyable I ve already read those volumes of the diaries I could get hold of which is most but not all of the published volumes This biography clearly draws heavily on those but also fills in some gaps childhood and the years of the famous m nage quatre at Ham Spray in the late 1920s early 1930s, and some of the painful detail of the short life and early death of her only son It s interesting to see how the diaries skilfully presented everything as a bit respectable than it really was no menti [...]


  • A well written, interesting biography of a remarkable diarist always a favorite genre of mine , editor, translator and member of the Bloomsbury circle who continued working at her desk until her death at 104 She married Carrington s husband, Ralph Partridge, and became part of that select artistic, intellectual group surround Lytton Strachey, writing, reviewing and traveling and always discussing I enjoyed the book immensely and am now equally taken with her diaries, borrowed from a friend.


  • I found this interesting enough but as I have read so much about the Bloomsbury set and about Frances partridge before, this just added to my store of knowledge I have read some of her diaries and as others have said they are really well written and fascinating I think you have to be a big fan already for it to make much sense as there are assumptions that you know a fair bit before you read this All in all a good read if not a great one.


  • I m so glad that I read this book.Frances Partridge was just barely on the edge of my consciousness as part of Bloomsbury, but she was a fascinating person and not adjunct at all The long span of her life, the people she knew, the fierceness of her intellect, the uniqueness of point of view they all make for a really rewarding biography.
