This volume brings together all of Virginia Woolf's short stories and sketches. Sixteen have never before been published.
These 45 pieces are presented chronologically and cover the range of Woolf's writing career. The earliest story, "Phyllis and Rosamond," dates from 1906 shortly after she began to publish essays and reviews. "The Water Place" was written a few weeks before her death in 1941 and was probably her last finished piece of fiction.
"Although a number of the stories are traditional in form, others are sketches or lyrical prose reveries. Throughout her life Woolf used short fiction to test narrative techniques she would later employ in her novels. To read through this volume, then, is to follow the development of her art."
