As memoirs become increasingly popular, it is somewhat surprising that so little attention has been given to one of the most notable manifestations of memoirs in modern time: the Bloomsbury Group's 'Memoir Club'. Leading Bloomsbury scholar S.P. Rosenbaum collected most of the surviving memoirs by the group, including those by first members Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Roger Fry, J.M. Keynes, Lytton Strachey, E. M. Forster, Vanessa and Clive Bell, Molly and Desmond MacCarthy and Duncan Grant. Using this original archival research, Rosenbaum had written a large part of a history of the Memoir Club before his death in May 2012. Edited by distinguished Woolf scholar James M. Haule, who provides an introduction, an afterword, and an annotated list of memoirs, The Bloomsbury Group Memoir Club offers a perceptive chronicle of the Memoir Club's origins and first years, an important addition to our understanding not just of the work of the Club's participants, but also of twentieth-century autobiography and the history of Bloomsbury more generally.

'The number of people now preoccupied with life-writing and memoirs is extraordinarily large; when we are talking about the figures in the Memoir Club, the interest expands incredibly exponentially. It would be difficult to exaggerate the importance of understanding the work of the Memoir Club in regard to the history of twentieth-century British culture. And no one would be more qualified than the late S.P. Rosenbaum to write the history of a club that included, basically, the 'membership' of the Bloomsbury Group.' - Morris Beja, Emeritus Professor of English, Ohio State University, USA
'Rosenbaum's project, left unfinished at his death in 2012, was to reconstruct as far as possible the club's history and to republish the existing papers in a single accompanying volume his notes make a convincing case for reconsidering the memoirs in context, as a group of essays with internal connections' - London Review of Books
'Rosenbaum's study is a valuable addition to the library of any reader interested by the life and writings of the Bloomsbury Group' - Times Literary Supplement
'S P Rosenbaum sadly died before he could complete this book about an aspect of Bloomsbury that is often forgotten the group's love of autobiography It is nevertheless a fascinating account and of a group who were famously intertwined.' - Lesley McDowell, The Independent
'Rosenbaum, who died shortly before finishing this fine book, makes a terrific case for the way that reaching into their personal and collective pasts pushed club members to take their work to new that is, old places.' - Kathryn Hughes, The Guardian
