Travels with Virginia Woolf

by Edited by Jan Morris
£14.99   paperback  Vintage (1997)

Travels with Virginia Woolf by Edited by Jan Morris Virginia Woof had an engagingly lively sense of place and delighted in 'lighting accidentally...upon scenes which would have gone on, have always gone on, will go on, unrecorded, save for this chance glimpse'.
 
Following Virginia's footsteps from her beloved Sussex and Cornwall to wartime London, from Italy and the Riviera to Greek mountains and the wilds of Spain, Jan Morris intersperses verbal sketches of a Greek peasant wedding, a fenland sky, an elderly spinster in a hotel dining room in Italy, or Bognor pier in the rain with her own brief, telling comments on both writer and subject.

"Jan Morris has selected these pieces with real knowledger and affection... This is a beautiful book."
(Jane Dunn, author of 'Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell')
"Delightful reading... It is a wonderful book for dipping into as it conjures up the marvellous atmosphere of a bygone age."
