Although I opted to abandon Orlando, a fine conversation about Virginia Woolf’s novel is taking place at Nonsuch Book. Frances’s cogent post about her rereading of Orlando convinces me that my aversion to the novel was about timing, rather than the story itself.
>Thanks Anthony. Too kind. Hoping to see you in two weeks for The Waves. We will need you for that one. Happy reading.
>I'm looking forward to The Waves. I read the introduction in the OUP edition. It did a good job of whetting my appetite.Currently though I am reading, slowly, The Vagrants. So powerful.
