The younger members of the Bloomsbury group didn't change the world as their elders did (Keynes, Lytton Strachey, Virginia Woolf), but their sexual adventures laid the groundwork for our changing mores. Nino Strachey (yes, a relative of Lytton) delivers her own text with little drama but considerable clarity. Much of her focus is on those sexual relationships, so it is just as well not to overdramatize them, but the creative lives of the second generation in Bloomsbury deserve more, and more evocative, attention. With such a heavy emphasis on the physical and romantic entanglements of the characters, they sometimes become hard to keep sorted out, and some vocal characterization would have helped in keeping score.
