A highly sensitive and intelligent child, Virginia Woolf grew up in a large family prone to psychological instability. Throughout her life, she was subject to periods of mental breakdown, yet when she was lucid she was capable of a uniquely perceptive and frank introspection. Under the influence of the Bloomsbury Group and their progressive social attitudes, she became experimental in her life and art, breaking with convention to produce some of the finest and most unique literary works of the twentieth century.

Virginia Woolf in 90 Minutes offers a concise, expert account of Woolf’s life and ideas and explains their influence on literature and on man’s struggle to understand his place in the world. The book also includes a list of Woolf’s chief works, a chronology of her life and times, and recommended reading for those who wish to delve deeper.
