9780099982609: Between The Acts (Vintage Classics)

WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY JACKIE KAY AND LISA JARDINE

A village pageant is to take place at Pointz Hall, the country home of the Oliver family for time beyond memory. Written and directed by the energetic Miss La Trobe, the pageant will take in the history of England from the Middle Ages. The past blends with the present and art blends with life in a narrative full of invention, affection and lyricism.

Between the Acts was Virginia Woolf's final novel, and this edition contains the original text that she was working on when she died.

Review:

"'Woolf was an innovator who redefined the novel and pointed the way towards its future possibilities.' Jeanette Winterson"

"

'Virginia Woolf stands as the chief figure of modernism in England andmust be included with Joyce and Proust in the realisation ofexperimental achievements that have completely broken with tradition' New York Times

"

From the Publisher:

Woolf's last novel and, in her own opinion, "more quintessential" than any of her others.
