Summary:
"In these pen portraits of his 'elders and betters' Quentin Bell shows us his parents, Clive and Vanessa Bell, his uncle and aunt, Leonard and Virginia Woolf, and others in their circleDuncan Grant and David Garnett among them. In writing of them he also tells the story of his own work: his employment as agricultural labourer, his career as artist - in two and three dimensions - and teacher of art, critic, writer, and as reluctant spokesman for Bloomsbury, which however he defends from ignorant or prejudiced assaults with conviction and humour."--Jacket.
