Kirkpatrick A5b. The only collection of short stories published during Woolf's lifetime. The eight stories ("A Haunted House", "A Society", "Monday or Tuesday", "An Unwritten Novel", "The String Quartet", "Blue and Green", "Kew Gardens" and "The Mark on the Wall") "varied in themes and narrative but clearly showed the nucleus and style of her new directions in writing. . . . [T]he short story proves for Woolf an ideal space of experimentation, in which she questions both traditional views on human perception and conventional forms of writing, thus opening the way to her radical transformation of the novel . . . " (Literary Encyclopedia) Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
