'The Years' is the story of the Pargiter family - their intimacies and estrangements, anxieties and triumphs - mapped out against the bustling rhythms of London's streets during the first decades of the twentieth century. Growing up in a typically Victorian household, the Pargiter children must learn to find their footing in an alternative world, where the rules of etiquette have shifted from the drawing room to the air-raid shelter.
Virginia Woolf's penultimate and most popular novel celebrates the resilience of the individual self and, in her dazzlingly fluid and distinctive style, she confidently paints a broad canvas across time, generation and class.
