A landmark study of Virginia Woolf, now back in print

Recollections, anecdotes and first-hand impressions—including pieces from some of the leading lights of the Bloomsbury Group—are gathered together in this perceptive and profound volume. Many pieces were specially written for the original edition of this book, including work by Duncan Grant, Rebecca West, and T.S. Eliot, while perhaps its most famous piece—by a member of her household staff—movingly describes her on the day of her death. From all these reminiscences, a composite and complex portrait of the artist emerges, one that no fan of her writings should be without.

About the Author:

Joan Russell Noble was a renowned Woolf scholar whose Recollections of Virginia Woolf was universally acclaimed on publication. It has remained an invaluable source on the Bloomsbury Group.

Review:

"The tantalisingly brief, strongly personal recollections of a fascinating bunch of characters tell us far more than any other biography."  —Daily Mail

"Enthralling... To read this book is to get to know a wonderful human being who was also a most gifted writer."  —Sunday Times
