Virginia Woolf: A Biography

Quentin Bell

The author of such landmark works as Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and A Room of One’s Own and a woman and an artist far ahead of the time in which she lived and worked, Virginia Woolf has been the object of scrutiny ever since her suicide in 1941. Here, using excerpts from family journals as well as pieces of Virginia’s own correspondance and diaries, Quentin Bell has created an unparalleled portrait of his aunt and provides a view of Bloomsbury life as only a family member could. Through a childhood of arrivals and departures to the inspiration behind Woolf’s greatest books, her marriage to Leonard Woolf, and her daring affair with Vita Sackville-West, Bell reveals the human being behind what has become the Bloomsbury legend.
