Today is Virginia Woolf’s 136th birthday. I’m sorry to say, for such a known author, I have never read any of her novels. She wrote 9 novels, 6 short story collections and many other works.
She is was born in England in 1882 and died in 1941 at 49 years old by filling a coat she was wearing with rocks and walking into a river near her home. She fought with depression.
Some recommend if you haven’t read Woolf to start with Mrs. Dalloway (published in 1925), so I’ll give it a try. I’ll be sure to write a review.
I’ve never read any either. Such a tragic ending but depression is such a crippler and no one is immune to it.
