Summary
"On April 18th, 1941, twenty-two days after Virginia Woolf went for a walk near her weekend house and never returned, her body was reclaimed from the River Ouse. For more than half a century, Woolf's suicide has been attributed to alleged depression; bipolar disorder; her impaired mental state after two of her London apartments had been bombed during the Second World War's brutal Blitz. With Adeline--a stunning and provocative reimagining of the events that brought Virginia Woolf to the riverbank--Norah Vincent posits connections not made before, offering us a dâenouement worthy of its protagonist. An ambitious work in the tradition of Woolf herself, Adeline audaciously explores the interior consciousness of the most interior of authors, from the summer she began working on To The Lighthouse through the winter she finished Between the Acts. Intellectually and emotionally disarming, Adeline--a vibrant portrait of the author and her social circle, the infamous Bloomsbury Group, and a window into the darkness that both inspired and doomed them all--is a masterpiece in its own right by one of our most brilliant and daring writers.
