9780143112259: A Life of One's Own: A Guide to Better Living Through the Work and Wisdom of Virginia Woolf

In the tradition of How Proust Can Change Your Life, a unique handbook for using the brilliance of Virginia Woolf to enhance everyday life. One of the most admired writers of the twentieth century, Virginia Woolf is as popular now as she ever was. In this remarkable book, award-winning professor Ilana R. Simons plumbs the depths of Woolf's words and career, drawing on them to produce a lively and accessible guide to more fulfilling, more original living inspired by one of literature's greatest observers of human nature. The result, beautifully packaged, is almost worthy of Woolf herself.

Chapter headings include:

  • Accept Solitude
  • Take on Challenging Friendships
  • Change Routine
  • Lie to Encourage Your Friends
  • Read and Be More
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
