Daughter of France by V. Sackville-West

Daughter of France by V. Sackville-West. 1959 Michael Joseph, fourth printing, 384 pages. Sackville-West was a British novelist and biographer, companion and lover to Virginia Woolf, and accomplished gardener. Rebecca Dinerstein Knight wrote in an essay in The Paris Review writes, "The reductive canonization of her affair with Woolf has elbowed out a more luxurious, strange story: Vita loved several women with exceptional ardor; simultaneously adored her also-bisexual husband, Harold; ultimately came to prefer the company of flora over fauna of any gender; and committed herself to a life of prolific creation (written and planted) that redefined passion itself." Daughter of France is a biography of Anne Marie Louise d'Orleans, duchesse de Montepensier.
