The Hidden Life Of Virginia Woolf
Building on the hard realities of her early years - the succession of tragic and untimely deaths, the illness, the stretches of madness - 'Granite and Rainbow' places these materials before the reader as they emerged, infallibly transformed by Woolf's imagination in her iridescent novels, letters and diaries. Leaska's access to the Woolf archives allows him to explore in unprecedented depth the troubled live of Virginia's parents. Plunging below the lyrical surface of Woolf's narratives, he uncovers the dissonances generated by her parent's relationship and the deeper story of how she sought to create harmony out of such profound divisions.
