Drawn by evidence of an illicit love affair between a member of each, Laurence (English, City College of New York) explores the web of relationships between two literary and intellectual communities: Bloomsbury, a literary community in England initiated about 1905 that became a driving force for modernism by the late 1920s; and the Crescent Moon group, a cosmopolitan Beijing literary clique that identified with English liberalism and literature and thrived around 1925-33.
