Synopsis

Period Piece is Gwen Raverat’s account of her Victorian childhood in Cambridge. Gwen was famed for her wood-engravings and her associations with the Bloomsbury Group. In this masterpiece of comic writing, she brings to life her eccentric aunts and uncles with snapshots of an extremely individual family. It is also a great social memoir, describing life in the late 19th century, growing up amid the fads and fetishes of academic and Victorian England. It is clear why this witty and irreverent book became a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic when it was published in 1952.
