This book looks at Virginia Woolf's various homes in Kensington, Richmond, and Bloomsbury, and her Sussex country retreats. It explains how the buildings and streets were far more to her than a home--London was a symbol of the vitality she attempted to put into her novels. This guidebook brings to life Woolf's city by tracing the footsteps of some of her characters, while giving a flesh and blood picture of her, impossible to find elsewhere. The book is illustrated with drawings of all Woolf's homes, and walking route maps. AUTHORBIO: JEAN MOORCROFT WILSON is currently working on a second volume of a biography of Siegfried Sassoon.
