In the early 20th century, Mecklenburgh Square—an architectural gem in the heart of London—was a radical address. Between the world wars, the lives of five remarkable women intertwined at this one address: modernist poet H.D., detective novelist Dorothy L. Sayers, classicist Jane Harrison, economic historian Eileen Power, and author-publisher Virginia Woolf.
