Leonard Woolf

A young administrator in colonial Ceylon, involvement in the early Labour Party, a maverick socialist whose passionately argued belief in collective security to prevent war, helped underpin the League of Nations – Leonard Woolf was always much more than the popular portrayal of him as either Virginia Woolf's carer and protector or as her oppressor.

This biography successfully keeps Virginia in second place, instead bringing out her husband's full stature.

His mantra 'Nothing matters, and everything matters' hints at the stability and wisdom he contributed to the Bloomsbury Group.
