I started reading Mrs Dalloway and found myself incapable of continuing until I pulled The Story of an Hour off my shelf for another quick read. After many years of re-reading, the emotional impact has never failed. I'm reminded of my grandmother's generation of women, living on decades after their husbands have died. Many living for themselves for the first time in their lives.

"When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease - of the joy that kills."
