Jacob's Room (Paperback)Virginia Woolf (author)
- In stock
WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY LAWRENCE NORFOLK AND ELISABETH BRONFEN
Jacob's Room is Virginia Woolf's first truly experimental novel. It is a portrait of a young man, tracing his life from childhood, to Cambridge University, and to his early adult life in artistic London. Jacob always yearns for something greater, and embarks on a voyage to the Mediterranean before the war begins and his fate is forever altered. Impressionistic in style, the narrative is as inspired now as it was when it first appeared.
