After finishing The Waves, Virginia Woolf started to write a biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's spaniel, tracing the life of the spaniel from his country origins, his puppyhood spent with the writer Mary Mitford, through his sheltered existence with Elizabeth Barrett in her sick room, and later travels in Florence.

Charming yet also radical, Flush is a work of sensuous imagination. Download and start listening now!
