Got some time for the Jewish member of the most famous English intellectual circle of the 20th century?  Lev Grossman, the hardest working man in the book reviewing business (he reviews books at a little rag called Time) has dedicated over six thousand words to the late Leonard Woolf in the latest issue of The Believer.  While I’m yet to get through the entire thing, I swear I’m going to, if not for my own strange infatuation with Leonard Woolf, but because under the "discussed", we’re promised Cambridge secret societies, boot dealers, Peter Pan, flying ships, J.K.
