This volume combines for the first time in paperback two books by Virginia Woolf which are among the greatest contributions to feminist literature this century.

And when it is finished it is with a renewed sense of zest and stimulus that one takes up life again and looks anew at objects which before were only ordinary." Guardian "Brilliant interweaving of personal experience, imaginative musing and political clarity" -- Kate Mosse "Achingly relevant" -- Natasha Walter Guardian
