#LaVieBoheme First thing that came to mind!
#MyShot can become a deadly obsession for a filmmaker sometimes as an actor learns in this book inspired by Cannibal Holocaust.
"And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door"
Also, Happy Birthday to Edgar Allan Poe!
This gorgeously illustrated biography follows Woolf‘s remarkable life and works. She was one of the founding member of the Bloomsbury Group.
Excerpt:”On Thursday evenings, Virginia‘s brother Thoby would invite his Cambridge friends to gather in the parlour to discuss art, politics, philosophy and their grand ideas. This was the start of the Bohemian ‘Bloomsbury Group‘ and Virginia delighted in her new freedom.”
My fascination with the capital of Bohemia aka Prague began with Kafka. For years I was fascinated by Prague & the tagged book was a real eye opener. A nonfiction history, encompassing the political, artistic & cultural history of the city, not being familiar with Peter Ackroyd at the time I'd never read anything like it before. Prague remains one of the cities I'd most like to travel to.

Last year I read and loved Virginia Woolf's Orlando, which was inspired by Vita Sackville-West, which led me down a rabbit hole of Sackville-West's work, which led me to purchase this book. According to the blurb it is: "Irreverently funny and surprisingly moving...the story of a woman who discovers who she is just before it is too late."
