Reviews

'She is my hero for two reasons: because she was a genius, and because she was very brave, both in life and in her work' - Maggie Gee, Independent 'Virginia Woolf has become, at the end of the 20th century, both a cultural icon and an arresting personal destiny (madness, suicide) - the artist as pioneer and the artist as victim' - Edmund White, Sunday Times
