A Marriage of True Minds

by George Spater and Ian Parsons. Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, $12.95. The authors have assembled “An Intimate Portrait of Leonard and Virginia Woolf” —meaning a great deal of detail about their finances, household arrangements, and the medical problems arising from Virginia’s periodic attacks of mental illness. This not always enthralling material is much enlivened by quotation from the Woolf papers and the presence of 148 photographs. Introduction by Quentin Bell. Biographical particulars, references.
