About this title


These early journals record Virginia Woolf's "sublime trajectory" (Bloomsbury Review) from a gifted adolescent to a professional writer and complete the magnificent self-portrait provided by her published letters and diaries. Edited and with a Preface and Introduction by Mitchell A. Leaska; Index.

From the Inside Flap:

These early journals, beginning when Woolf was only fifteen, open at a time when she was recovering from a period of madness. They are the beginning of the future Virginia Woolf?s apprenticeship as a novelist.
