Francesca Wade and Alexandra Harris: Square Haunting

In the period between the wars nearby Mecklenburgh Square was home to many artists, writers and radicals. In a stunning work of rediscovery Francesca Wade focuses on five remarkable women who lived there: the modernist poet and visionary H.D; crime writer and translator of Dante Dorothy L. Sayers; classicist Jane Harrison; economic historian Eileen Power; and writer and publisher Virginia Woolf. Co-editor of the White Review, Francesca Wade’s articles have appeared in the LRBTLSFinancial TimesProspect and New StatesmanSquare Haunting is her first full-length book and is published by Faber.

She was in conversation with Alexandra Harris, whose books include Romantic Moderns and Weatherland.
