Virginia Woolf turned to her diary as to an intimate friend, to whom she could freely and spontaneously confide her thoughts on public events or the joys and trials of domestic life. Between 1st January 1915 and her death in 1941 she regularly recorded her thoughts with unfailing grace, courage, honesty and wit. The result is one of the greatest diaries in the English language.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Her nephew Quentin Bell claims that the thirty volumes of Woolf's diary are a masterpiece.Anne Olivier Bell has reduced them to a single volume. It think it is still a masterpiece -- A.S. Byatt * Evening Standard *
I stick by the old heresy, that Woolf's diary is her greatest achievement. An enthrallingly uncensored portrait of a brilliantly perceptive mind as it moves through a fascinating world in complex times -- Alan Hollinghurst * New York Times *
One of the glories of our literature -- Paul Levy
She made portraits exact, more clairvoyant, more living than those of any writer I know -- P.N. Furbank
A work of the highest imaginative genius, with powers of perception and description unexampled in our time -- Isaiah Berlin
