Taking family, friends, and servants as her subjects, Virginia Woolf presents a series of impressions of the people around her. As she describes their lives—including an in-depth piece on her nephew Julian Bell and sketches on Bloomsbury figures Lady Ottoline Morrell and Lady Strachey—she also reveals much about her own attitudes on the War, her writing, and education. The result is a fascinating and revealing work that will crucially augment what is currently available of her biographical writings.

About the Author:

Most famous for her novels Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) is one of the foremost innovative writers of the 20th century. S. P. Rosenbaum is the author of Georgian Bloomsbury: The Early Literary History of the Bloomsbury Group and the editor of A Bloomsbury Group Reader and Women & Fiction: The Manuscript Versions of a Room of One's Own.  

Review:

"Recommended."  —Choice

"You get a feel for the atmosphere of the time and the Bloomsbury Group . . . an interesting book if you want to know more about this particular group of writers and artists without having to wade through a lengthy volume."  —New Books magazine



"Absorbing . . . Published here in full for the first time are a talk Woolf gave on her part in the 1910 "Dreadnought Hoax," and a memoir of Rupert Brooke, written for the TLS. Perceptive and thoughtful, this book illuminates one of the 20th century’s most innovative writers."  —The Good Book Guide



"Brings together material either scattered through other collections or, in some cases, not republished since their first appearance . . . a most welcome complement to the longer pieces collected in Moments of Being."  —The Year's Work in English Studies
