Overview

The moving story of the life and work of novelist Virginia Woolf, revealed through her own letters to those closest to her.

The letters - at times witty and irreverent, at times melancholy and introspective - are possibly even more revealing for their insights into the complex personality of the novelist herself; "A true letter", she insisted, "should be like a film of wax pressed close to the graving of the mind".

The book contains biographical notes on the main recipients of the letters, together with background information on Virginia Woolf's life and work.

This book is beautifully illustrated with contemporary photographs and paintings, many by members of the Bloomsbury Group, such as Woolf's sister Vanessa Bell, Roger Fry and Duncan Grant. Illustrations: white photographs and artworks throughout.

Frances Spalding's previous books include "British Art Since 1900" and biographies of the painters Roger Fry and Vanessa Bell.
