Now Nigel Nicolson, the distinguished son of British writers Harold Nicolson and Vita Sackville-West--one of Woolfs closest friends and sometime lover-- threads his personal reminiscences through the narrative of her life. In so doing, he paints an astonishing portait of one of the most remarkable women in history. Nicolson recalls childhood times with Woolf: from her walks around his ancestral home as she planned Orlando to her writing of the modern classics Mrs. Dalloway and A Room of Ones Own. Virginia Woolf probes keenly her stance on womens issues and the nature of war and is suffused with personal admiration and affection for this incomparable writer.
