Description
In the summer of 1923 Virginia Woolf's nephews, Quentin and Julian Bell, started a family newspaper, The Charleston Bulletin. Quentin asked his aunt Virginia for a contribution—"it seemed stupid to have a real author so close at hand and not have her contribute"—and from 1923 until 1927 they created booklets of stories and drawings that were announced as Supplements. Written or dictated by Woolf and illustrated by Quentin, they were designed to tease the adults in the family, and so portray Bloomsbury eccentricities along with the foibles and mishaps of the residents and visitors at Charleston. The Supplements are transcribed here in full for the first time alongside some 40 of Bell's original illustrations.

"Good evidence of Woolf's wicked capacity for gossip, parodies and pranks.... [Woolf in] the 1920s was still a natural satirist, still addicted to the social comedy of families, and still making jokes as an expression of love."—Guardian (London)
