Summary “Virginia Woolf was a tireless correspondent, writing as many as six letters a day; and Paper Darts, selected and introduced by Frances Spalding, offers a fascinating insight into her life. Virginia Woolf's close associates included her sister, the painter Vanessa Bell, writers such as E.M Forster, Lytton Strachey and Vita Sackville-West, and artists such as Roger Fry and Duncan Grant. As a member of the Bloomsbury Group (then considered shockingly avant-garde) and co-founder with her husband Lionel of the influential Hogarth Press, Virginia leaves us with a dazzling evocation of the intellectual life of the day. But her letters are perhaps even more revealing for their insights into the complex personality of the novelist herself. They range in tone from witty and irreverent - in keeping with the spirit of Bloomsbury - to melancholy and introspective, with intimations of the bouts of insanity that were to lead her to take her own life. Virginia was a writer of genius; and through her correspondence we come close to one of the most brilliant, capacious and high-spirited minds of the twentieth century.”--Book jacket
