With epic scope and a rich use of detail, Hermione Lee has created a miraculously evocative portrait that lets us know as never before how Virginia Woolf looked, how she sounded, how she dressed and behaved, and how she wrote. She shows us a brave, powerfully intelligent woman who suffered from a terrifying chronic illness and wrestled with the contradictions of her own character.

This amazing book shows Virginia Woolf in the context of her life and time. Hermione Lee takes an entirely balanced approach: she reports all of the conflicting views of this famous author and allows the reader to make up his/her own mind. A complex and comprehensive book about a fascinating writer. Enjoy!
