Francesca Wade's spellbinding group biography Square Haunting, explores how five trailblazing women; writer Virginia Woolf, novelist Dorothy L. Sayers, classicist Jane Harrison, historian Eileen Power, and poet H. D. pushed the boundaries of literature, scholarship, and social norms. Sarah LeFanu’s Something of Themselves is a triple biography of Rudyard Kipling, Mary Kingsley and Arthur Conan Doyle. Each of the three had personal reasons to leave England for South Africa during the Boer War, and LeFanu charts the writers' paths in the theatre of war, and explores how this period shaped their cultural legacies, shifting reputations, and influence on colonial policy.
