A sensitive narration by Corrie James immerses listeners in the tormented life and ultimate suicide of writer Virginia Woolf. Vincent's richly imagined chronicle weaves a complicated filigree of Woolf's interior monologues and conversations with the people pivotal to her life and her writing process. Virginia was named for her dead sibling, Adeline, but chose never to use the name. However, Adeline's ghostly presence haunts Virginia from childhood through her later life, having profound effects on her relationship with her sister Vanessa, her marriage to Leonard Woolf, and her friendships with T.S. Eliot and Lytton Strachey. James clearly portrays Woolf's intellectual passion, existential ennui, and emotional turmoil in Vincent's grim portrait of a brilliant, deeply troubled writer.
