WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY VALENTINE CUNNINGHAM AND CAROL ANN DUFFY

In this vivid portrait of one day in a woman's life, Clarissa Dalloway is preoccupied with the last-minute details of party she is to give that evening. As she readies her house she is flooded with memories and re-examines the choices she has made over the course of her life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Mrs Dalloway contains some of the most beautiful, complex, incisive and idiosyncratic sentences ever written in English, and that alone would be reason enough to read it. It is one of the most moving, revolutionary artworks of the twentieth century -- Michael Cunningham, author of The Hours
A beautiful piece of writing -- Will Self * Guardian *
I think To The Lighthouse and Mrs Dalloway are sheer magic -- Eileen Atkins * Daily Express *
Virginia Woolf was one of the great innovators of that decade of literary Modernism, the 1920s. Novels such as Mrs Dalloway and To the Lighthouse showed how experimental writing could reshape our sense of ordinary life. Taking unremarkable materials - preparations for a genteel party, a day on a bourgeois family holiday - they trace the flow of associations and ideas that we call "consciousness". * Guardian *

“Hard but worth it! I loved it.”

This book has been on my "to-read" list forever. When I was fourteen I bought my first copy and then left it to gather dust on my bookshelf. Now, some five years later I have finally matured enough to be... More
