Book Details

‘The hour should be evening and the season winter, for in winter the champagne brightness of the air and the sociability of the streets are grateful’. In such conditions, Virginia Woolf takes to London’s streets in search of a pencil. The account of her journey, the people, the places, the pleasure, soon becomes one of the great paeans to city life. This collection also includes other wonderful essays, such as ‘How Should One Read a Book?’ and ‘The Sun and the Fish’.
