WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY JEANETTE WINTERSON AND GILLIAN BEER The Waves is an astonishingly beautiful and poetic novel. It begins with six children playing in a garden by the sea and follows their lives as they grow up and experience friendship, love and grief at the death of their beloved friend Percival. Regarded by many as her greatest work, The Waves is also seen as Virginia Woolf's response to the loss of her brother Thoby, who died when he was twenty-six. The Vintage Classics Virginia Woolf series has been curated by Jeanette Winterson, and the texts used are based on the original Hogarth Press editions published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Clear, bright, burnished, at once marvellously accurate and subtly connotative. The pure, delicate sensibility found in this language and the moods that it expresses are a true kind of poetry" * New York Times *
"As a reader, as a writer, I constantly return, for the lyricism of it, the melancholy, the humanity" -- Amy Sackville * Independent *

“Hmm”

You either like Virginia Woolf or you don't. I find that if I read continously through the pages without stopping, there'll come a sentence which turns my confusion into complete understanding.
