Julia Strachey

Standard Name: Strachey, Julia
Birth Name: Julia Frances Strachey
JS published two novels and several pieces of short fiction during her lifetime, in the mid twentieth century. Frances Partridge writes in her introduction to JS 's memoir that when she died, after a long life centred on her vocation as a writer, it was many years since anything by her had seen the light.
Strachey, Julia, and Frances Partridge. Julia: A Portrait of Julia Strachey. Little, Brown.
This memoir, featuring previously unpublished creative pieces, was issued posthumously. JS 's work was praised by such contemporaries as Virginia Woolf , but has received little critical attention, either initially or recently.
