A leading figure in the Bloomsbury circle, whose brilliant, stylistically innovative novels of the 1920s—among them To the Lighthouse and Mrs. Dalloway—extended the boundaries of fiction writing, Virginia Woolf delighted in the friendships and intrigues of her literary milieu. Yet her life was marred by mental illness, and in 1941, at the age of 59, she drowned herself. This concise, heavily illustrated biography from the author of Marcel Proust reveals Woolf's feminist ideals, her modernism, and her sensitivity to the minutiae of human life, and offers rare photos and portraits of the wider Bloomsbury group.

"What distinguishes this brief biography is the number and quality of the illustrations. The editors have graced almost every page with telling, sometimes haunting, images of the author, her friends and family, the places and objects that meant so much to her. Thus we are treated to numerous paintings by Vanessa Bell, Simon Bussy, Duncan Grant, and others, vividly depicting the Bloomsbury group at work and play. The writing ... is lucid, brisk, and unpretentious—perfect for the casual fan or the student looking for an accessible introduction to the life of this major figure. The book closes with a useful bibliography and a reasonably thorough 'life at a glance' chronology."—Booklist
