One of the most famous of all literary dogs, Flush was the golden cocker spaniel belonging to Elizabeth Barrett. In this charming and heartfelt biography, Virginia Woolf tells his story: his early days as Miss Mitford's puppy running across the fields in wild abandon and fathering another, the years spent in his invalid mistress' bedroom in Wimpole Street, the terror of his kidnap by a Whitechapel gang, the excitement of Miss Barrett's relationship with Robert Browning, and a subsequent very different and much happier life in Italy.

Flush, already immortalised in poetry, is vividly brought to life in this humorous, compassionate yet unsentimental portrayal of a dog's loves, fears, jealousies, and reconciliations. This is a triumph of imaginative, sympathetic and remarkably accessible writing.

    " Cute biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning from the perspective of her dog. Not what you would necessarily expect from V. Woolf but an enjoyable read. A good contrast after struggling through "The Waves." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Morgan | 1/28/2014

    " This is one of Virginia Woolf's oddest novels I thought. It reminded me very much of her earlier book Orlando. Same writing style and same chapter set-up. The book also reminded me of a dog version of Black Beauty as well. Overall, if you like dog stories this book is for you. "
