The Waves traces the lives of six friends from childhood to old age. It was written when Virginia Woolf was at the height of her experimental literary powers, and she allows each character to tell their own story, through powerful, poetic monologues. By listening to these voices struggling to impose order and meaning on their lives we are drawn into a literary journey which stunningly reproduces the complex, confusing and contradictory nature of human experience.

    " I absolutely love this book!!! It is my solace. It captures the beauty of my favorite thing in the world (the Ocean) with page after page of wonderful photographs. All they need to do is soak the book in Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion and I would feel the sand between my toes. "

    " Re-read this and am still astonished by it. For my money, Virginia Woolf still knows more about how people think than any other author I've come across. "

    " If you like weird, difficult to read, prose poems about death and empire, this book is for you. Brittania rule The Waves. "
