Happy Birthday Virginia Woolf!

Virginia Woolf 1927.jpg Today is Virginia Woolf’s 136th birthday. I’m sorry to say, for such a known author, I have never read any of her novels.  She wrote 9 novels, 6 short story collections and many other works.

She is was born in England in 1882 and died in 1941 at 49 years old by filling a coat she was wearing with rocks and walking into a river near her home. She fought with depression.

Some recommend if you haven’t read Woolf to start with Mrs. Dalloway (published in 1925), so I’ll give it a try. I’ll be sure to write a review.

  1. I have to confess to finding Woolf difficult to read. I couldn’t cope with Orlando or Mrs Dalloway. It’s only the non-fiction I enjoy such as A Room of One’s Own. And the Diaries are riveting!

Let me know what you think!
