Vita Sackville-West is perhaps best known as the creator, with her husband Harold Nicholson, of the gardens at Sissinghurst Castle, now the most visited gardens in Britain. Images of Vita – striking, poised, aristocratic, and intellectual – remain iconic even now. Yet these public images do not tell the whole story. Behind the mask lay another, more complicated Vita. Here, in the first biography to be written for thirty years, Matthew Dennison reveals a renegade, brave and charismatic woman.
