I'm very grateful to Snowbooks for my gratis copy of Virginia Woolf's The London Scene which arrived today and I hope you've claimed yours. I'm relieved I answered the question correctly because even I have trouble remembering which book I've just read.
I'm going to be in terrible trouble with Miss as I sneaked a look at the entry on Carlyle's House at 24 Cheyne Row, Chelsea because I've been there and I wanted to see if I agreed with Virginia Woolf.
Yes I did. The house is now owned by The National Trust and it still creaks with that dark 19th century atmosphere.I fell completely in love with the atmospheric sense of time and place and quite expected Mr or Mrs C to be waiting around the corner, him to moan at me for making a noise, her with scrubbing brush in hand.If you ask nicely one of the curators will don the white gloves and get out the visitor's book and therin lies a who's who of 19th century literary London with of course Virginia Woolf's entry.
If you live in London I'm sure you've visited, if you haven't it's a must and then there's all that shopping along the King's Road afterwards.
But I have also spotted something else very perturbing on the Snowbooks website and once I've recovered my equilibrium I will share it with you all here later today.If you are 50+ stay resolutely seated in your armchair, don't even go and look at this,it is far too disturbing and will upset you:-)
