Mrs Dalloway's Party: A short story sequence
A beautifully jacketed collection of seven Virginia Woolf short stories, all written around the theme of parties and brought back into print for the first time in 40 years.
Written in the same period as Mrs Dalloway these seven short stories show the author's fascination with parties and with all the excitement, the fluctuations of mood and temper and the heightened emotions which surround these social occasions. Mrs Dalloway's Party is enchanting piece of work by one of our most acclaimed twentieth-century writers.
"Full of insightful monologues about human frailty, these stories are a stand-alone delight worth investigating" - Stylist
"Mesmerising" - Val Hennessey, Daily Mail
