This book gives a taste of Woolf, but is delivered with a crispness which doesn't allow readers an understanding of the depth of emotional unrest that she struggled with. A book can be slight and still have layers of emotional truth.

This book was an unusual read for me, both was an interesting one.

Parte de uma série na qual o autor traz os rudimentos - tanto biográfios, quanto a respeito da obra - de escritores consagrados, 90 minutos me fez ter vontade de reler Mrs. Dalloway, além de me deixar curiosa sobre Orlando e alguns estudos de Virgina Wolf.
Confesso que não compraria, mas ganhei de presente e acabou sendo um achado.
Maggie
sensitive and succinct summary of her life and her works.
Jillian
Fascinating (even if you're not a Woolf fan).
