A moving, perceptive and beautifully written insight into the workings of the mind of one of the best loved and most admired writers of the twentieth century.

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.

Reviews

Evening Standard

She made portraits exact, more clairvoyant, more living than those of any writer I know

A work of the highest imaginative genius, with powers of perception and description unexampled in our time

More alive than most living voices
