    What a pretentious, over-rated, self-regarding lot! What is their allure?

    Couldn't agree more. I do like their house though, the one they all went to in the country.

    And I like Duncan Grant's paintings. Vanessa Bell's are quite good too.

    They were incredibly self-obsessed and selfish. I agree that Charlston is beautiful though.

    An antidote to their times perhaps?

    No idea. Ghastly people.

    I am forming the Tessington Group, composed of thinkers, poets and socialites. Who would like to join?

    Is Tessington an important place?

    Though I might qualify for one, with an outside possibility of a second, I couldn't possibly be involved with a third.

    I think "Tessington" might be a typo.

    They had Keynes so they must have been brilliant as well.

    I was quite interested in Bloomsbury at one time; I've taken groups to Charleston and to that church down the road that Duncan and Vanessa decorated with their ugly murals. Bloomsbury looks best from a distance; their nice little private income lives devoted to art and literature, to worthy causes and having sex with each other seem attractive. When you get up close you see how nasty, selfish, unkind, snobby and bigoted they were. And that's with each other. They were worse to strangers.

    It's their snobbery that Sue Limb targets in Gloomsbury.

    If they were even half as odious as she portrays them? I'm with @racroeusus
    Except he doesn't do clubs and nor do I. Hmmmm.
