Feminist Destinations and Further Essays on Virginia Woolf by Rachel Bowlby
Book DescriptionRachel Bowlby's acclaimed book on Virginia Woolf now appears with five new essays which look at Woolf in a number of new frames - as a woman essayist; as a city writer and critic of modern culture; and as a writer on love. Rachel Bowlby shows, with inimitable critical panache, how it is that Woolf's writing, in its many forms and fashions, continues to provide rich matter for thinking about the histories and futures of women, writing and culture.

Ordinary life is full of words, images, and stories: we spend our days talking and writing about what's going on, and what has happened.
