An engrossing group biography of an extraordinary circle of men and women. Through the personal relationships of Havelock Ellis, Margaret Sanger, H.G. Wells, Rebecca West, Eleanor Marx (daughter of Karl) and Beatrice and Sidney Webb, Ruth Brandon shows us that women were forced to compromise in a way men never did for the sexual and social freedom they so assiduously avowed.
