Virginia Woolf

This prize-winning biography, newly revised, sees Virginia Woolf as she saw herself. The first to set out the private life behind the well-known facts of her public career, A Writer’s Life rocks back and forth between memories and art to reveal an explorer of ‘the infinite oddity of the human position’. Instead of the doom-and-death often imposed on women of genius, here is the robust walker and seeker for what was fertile in her intimacies, in women’s nature, and in resistance to power. This edition brings out her ideas for biography itself: to fall on a life ‘like a roll of heavy waters… laying bare the pebbles on the shore of the soul’.
