Mrs. Dalloway
Virginia Woolf
Adult Fiction WOOLF

Comments  Summary  Contents  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

As Clarissa Dalloway prepares to host a party in 1920s London, she is unexpectedly reunited with her old friend Peter Walsh in a novel that shifts among the inner monologues of its many characters and is darkened by the terrors and hallucinations of parallel protagonist Septimus Smith. Juliet Stevenson's performance-with its lyricism and lilt-is perfectly matched to Woolf's text and transports the listener. Stevenson produces a delightful range of distinct voices-her introspective, fragile Clarissa and stormy Peter are particularly strong. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
