Fiction/ Classics • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1937

Finty Williams's bright, lively voice immediately engages listeners in Virginia Woolf's 1937 novel. Beginning in 1880, the story chronicles fifty years in the life of the Pargiter family yet doesn't actually sustain a narrative line. It is more a series of lively vignettes, significant events, memories, and sensations. Of course, Woolf's feminism and social consciousness are ever present, but even more prevalent in this work is her awareness of the remorseless passage of time. While the novel is fascinating as much for its omissions as for its artful prose and character sketches, it is Finty Williams's performance, her intensity and believable characterizations, that will keep listeners glued to their headsets.
