To me, Virginia's letters are her masterpiece. I am huge fan, but I admit sometimes her novels are thick and esoteric (lots of references to Bloombury friends,family and her own musings). I've never been able to finish "The Waves" for example. However, her letters a DELIGHTFUL. In them, we see her humor and mischevious side.
