If you haven't read it yet, I'd suggest Orlando, since it seems like something you'd like (it's weird and interesting. At the beginning, Orlando is a young man in ELizabethan England. By the end, he's lived through several centuries, transformed into a woman, and living in England in the 1930's -- at least I think it was the 30's. it's been a while since I've read it). We can loan it to you, if you want. Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse are also both wonderful.

That's actually the one I was thinking of reading; it's possible I have a copy somewhere in the heap, but if not I may take you up on the loan. I do have a copy of To the Lighthouse.

Let us know. We also have Mrs. Dalloway if you get interested. Probably some others as well that I'm forgetting.

And today is Virginia Woolf's birthday! Good timing!

I'd agree with Orlando being a good one to go to next. You could then tackle Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, my own favorites. The Waves is ... unique. I've seldom read a more abstract novel. The Years I remember thinking was a bit long, but overall rewarding. A Writer's Diary is a great selection, though necessarily don't give a sense of the diaries as a whole. The essays are astoundingly elegant. The letters are fun, too. I could go on and on -- Woolf is one of my absolute favorites. And Hermione Lee's biography is one of the great biographies of the past 100 years.

That's a bit odd about it being her birthday; still, the chances are 1 in 365, I guess. Thanks for the recommendations, Matt!
