Review: Virginia Woolf: A Writer's LifeUser Review - Oscar - Goodreads
More of an attempt to understand Woolf through her writing than a conventional timeline biography. Gordon's insights often enriched my understanding of Woolf's novels. I especially enjoyed the chapter on The Waves. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone interested in Woolf the writer. Read full review
