9780156935555: Violet Trefusis

A remarkable woman in her own right and a highly gifted writer, Violet Trefusis is especially remembered for her scandalous affair with Vita Sackville-West, first disclosed in Portrait of a Marriage. After their abortive flight from their husbands in 1920, Vita returned to England and her writing, and Violet became an expatriate, immersing herself in international society and the world of art. This intriguing biography traces her life from a romantic childhood-when her mother, Alice Keppel, was the mistress of King Edward VII-to her death in Florence in 1972. A supplement of correspondence between Violet and Vita Sackville-West provides further insights into their relationship. The letters from Violet reveal, as nowhere else in her writing, the depth of her feelings for Vita. Those from Vita, written years later, attest that their love for one another never really ended.

About the Author:

John was born in Southern England. After finishing his education in London and with three qualifications, he spent many years in the Chemical Industry, which took him to destinations throughout Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. The frequent and long flights gave John's interest in writing a chance to grow first with technical presentations at both national and international conferences around the world, and then later developing story lines for his novels. John moved to the USA in August 1998, arriving in Tampa, Florida. Tampa continues to be his home, where he lives with his wife, Cristy, and their two dogs. When asked about life, John states: "I have been lucky enough to travel around the world several times. To me, travel is knowledge. Where you go, and who you meet makes you who you are. My family, extended family, friends - all of them - makes this chapter in my life so meaningful. I am excited to embrace all the chapters still to come!" http: //www.authorjohnphillips.com/ https: //www.facebook.com/authorjphillips/?fref=ts https: //twitter.com/authorjphillips
