Virginia Woolf once mused that no biographer had ever been "subtle enough and bold enough to present that queer amalgam of dream and reality, that perpetual marriage of granite and rainbow" that is an artist's life.
Mitchell Leaska has now answered this daunting challenge. The editor of two of her novels, a volume of letters and her early journals as well as the author of a critical work, Leaska is uniquely placed to write the most uncompromising and deeply informed literary biography to date, one that unearths much new and disturbing material that shines light on both Woolf's life and work.
