The record of a woman who not only participated in the lives of the legendary Bloomsbury group but is the circle's oldest surviving member

Hanging On Summary

Hanging On by Frances Partridge

Frances Partridge knew well most of the leading members of the Bloomsbury group. Hanging On contains many of her memories of them. It also contains, among her reflections on her own life, her private thoughts on the complex relations between herself, Dora Carrington, Lytton Strachey and her beloved husband Ralph. It is with the death of Ralph in 1960 that this book opens. But even in the depths of morbidity Frances Partridge never loses her knowledge of the fecundity of life, her sense of fun, her eye for absurdity, or her capacity and hunger for beauty, that much-derided Bloomsbury characteristic. 'There's no living diarist like her and she has much more to give us.' Nicholas Henderson, Evening Standard
