This chapter analyses Vita Sackville-West's hugely unexplored business relationship with the Woolfs. It studies previously unpublished letters and the Woolfs' smart negotiations with Sackville-West, showing their investment in bestselling fiction, as well as their understanding of the commercial advantages of middlebrow institutions. The chapter also challenges the readings of the Hogarth Press, revealing that the Woolfs networked into and were knowledgeable about modern fields of book production and writing.

Keywords:   Vita Sackville-West, business relationship, bestselling fiction, commercial advantages, middlebrow institutions, readings, book production, book writing
