really liked it
bookshelves: nonfiction

This book is, quite uncharacteristically, a quick and easy read. Perhaps Virginia did this because she was writing about something important and wanted the piece to actually be read. Or, it could simply be that the very seeds of the work were cultivated towards public presentation. In any case, I'm impressed by her ability to maintain her artistry within the format. What's more, she was able to freely write a book about writing -- and the writing of women, no less! I feel paralyzed by self-consciousness just composing a review.

In summary:
Read this book. This book is good. Important too.

Rebecca I got Elle magazine, cos our Wino was on the cover, and inside Pamela Anderson was ranting the virtues of this work.

*runs away slow motion* ;)

Sarah Well, that just proves the book has broad appeal!

Pamela is literate?


Rebecca I guess, I'm just one of those people who stand in the darkness afraid to step into the light. ;)

Sarah I was about to ask if that was a Woolf quote! =b
