From Library Staff

A collection of essays inspired by the celebrated writer's favorite walks.

As with the Margaret Drabble book, The London Scene by Virginia Woolf gives readers a view of London in the World War II era, of ordinary existence, told with the mastery that is characteristic of her writing.

This is a short, sweet book about the bygone days of London town. Only 77 pages long, yet full of delightful descriptions of how London was in the 1930's. These six short articles were written for a British women's magazine. The articles are about the people, places, government, Abbeys and churches of a great city. The writing is beautiful.This book is a nice way to introduce yourself to the writing style of Virginia Woolf.
