Product Description

So long as you write what you wish to write, that is all that matters; and whether it matters for ages or only for hours, nobody can say.”
It’s the 20th century and Virginia Woolf is invited to speak to a roomful of young writers at a few colleges. She left the room and society at large perplexed with the thoughts she raised. Would Shakespeare’s sisters be given the same room to flourish if she had his skill sets? Can a women flourish if given the physical space to be by herself and ideate? Can a woman find a professional identity if not infrastructurally empowered? As a society do we allow this?
This book, although a work of fiction with a fictitious narrator and setting, is inspired by the lectures delivered by Woolf. As a revolutionary work, it remains poignant and relevant even today as we seemingly progress to an equal society but struggle with conditionings of gender roles. Despite its heavy subject, it’s an enjoyable, funny, sarcastic, and sensitive read; like a conversation with a dear friend."

About Author

VIRGINIA WOOLF (1882-1941). An iconic figure in modernist literature, with her experimental writing style and exploration of complex themes such as gender, identity, and consciousness, Woolf made an indelible mark on the literary landscape of the 20th century. She was born on January 25, 1882, in London, England. She was raised in a highly intellectual and artistic household. In her late teens, Woolf suffered a series of devastating losses, including the deaths of her mother and her half-sister, Stella. These traumatic events had a profound impact on her mental health and shaped the themes of loss, grief, and identity that generally permeate her works. Virginia Woolf's breakthrough as a writer came with the publication of her novel Mrs. Dalloway in 1925, followed by other influential works such as To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928).
