1 - 2 weeks availability


Letters to Virginia Woolf is both a lyrical memoir and meditation on Woolf's life and writing. Starting with the events of 9/11, Williams examines Woolf's anti-war views and their relevance to our present time. In her pacifist manifesto, Three Guineas, Woolf wrote, "A common interest unites us; it is one world, one life." This book explores the events of 9/11 within the context of Woolf's passionate cry for a world without war. In six concise parts, Lisa Williams writes letters to Virginia Woolf that reflect on Woolf's ideas about war, memory, and childhood as well as her own experiences with these very issues.
