Virginia Woolf was born in London and lived there all her life. This book looks at her various homes in Kensington, Richmond and Bloomsbury, as well as her Sussex country retreats and explains how the buildings and streets were far more to her than a home. London was a symbol for the vitality and "life" she attempted to put into her novels and Jean Moorcroft Wilson has produced a guidebook bringing to life Virginia Woolf's city by tracing the footsteps of some of her characters, from Mrs Dalloway to Septimus Smith. The book also gives a flesh and blood picture of the author by closely relating the writing to the backcloth of London.
