Virginia Woolf to Vanessa Bell, 8 November 1930: "We had a terrific visitation from Hugh Walpole. If you want a book from the Times, get Cakes and Ale by Somerset Maugham. All London is ringing with it. For there poor Hugh [Walpole] is most cruelly and maliciously at the same time unmistakably and amusingly caricatured [as Alroy Kear]. He was sitting on his bed with only one sock on when he opened it. There he sat with only one sock on till 11 next morning reading it [...] He almost wept in front of Hilda Matheson, Vita [Sackville-West] and Clive [Bell], in telling us. And he couldn"t stop.
