Synopsis

Painter Dora Carrington caught the fancy of Lytton Strachey, the well known London literary critic and biographer, the first time he saw her. There was one snag: the homosexual writer thought she was a boy. So begins one of the most convoluted and unconventional love stories of the Bloomsbury era--a passionate bond that would survive even the amorous complications of a menage a trois, quatre and cinq.
