Description

EDITED BY JOANNE TRAUTMANN BANKS, WITH A PREFACE BY HERMIONE LEE

The finest and most enjoyable of Virginia Woolf’s letters are brought together in a single volume. It is a marvellous collection – spontaneous, witty, often flirtatious and powerfully moving. Whether bemoaning some domestic travail, commenting publicly on the state of the nation, or discussing cultural, artistic or personal concerns, Virginia Woolf is one of the great correspondents. This volume displays not only Woolf’s courage and brilliance, her generosity and love of gossip, but also her genius for close and enduring friendship.

Publisher Review

Letters as well selected as these, and as brilliant, close the gap between the author and the private person * The Times * About her letters there can be no division: they are among the best ever written in the English language * Sunday Telegraph *
