Alexandra Harris's hugely acclaimed book Romantic Moderns (winner of the 2010 Guardian First Book Award) overturned our picture of modernist culture during the interwar years. In this, her second book, she brings her attention to one of the towering figures of literary modernism. It is an intensely pleasurable read that weaves together the life and work of Virginia Woolf, and serves as an ideal introduction to both. Following the chronology of Woolf's life, it considers each of the novels in context, gives due prominence to her dazzlingly inventive essays, traces the contentious course of her `afterlife' and shows why, seventy years after her death,Virginia Woolf continues to haunt and inspire us.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A masterclass in the art of slimming down scholarship without dumbing it down ... armed with the insights from this most enjoyable text, I can't wait to go back to the novels and try again' - Sussex Life
'A wonderfully perceptive, unpretentious study which is pacy in style, riveting in content and perfectly accessible to the most obdurate Woolf-avoider ... by the final page Harris has made you desperate to tackle the novels, to get stuck in and to submerge yourself in Woolf's unmistakable, wholly original and imaginative responses to the world' - Daily Mail
'The critical evaluations of Woolf's novels are elegant and searching ... an ideal introduction' - Financial Times
'Harris tells the story crisply and with personality, and the book is beautifully produced by Thames & Hudson'' - Guardian
'A miracle of clarity and concision' - Washington Post
