From Virginia Woolf's idyllic childhood to the formation of the revolutionary Bloomsbury Group, and from the publication of such influential books as A Room of One's Own and Mrs. Dalloway to her 1941 suicide in the River Ouse, this affectionately compiled book recounts the key events of Woolf's life in brief captions, interspersed with quotes from her books. Woolf's relationships with Leonard Woolf and Vita Sackville-West are chronicled here, as is the establishment of Hogarth Press and her often unhappy creative process. Nina Cosford's bright, cheerful paintings are closely correlated to Zena Alkayat's text, creating a petite, beautifully arranged gift book that may also serve as an informative introduction to one of the 20th century's most innovative and respected authors.
