About This Book

From a New York Times best-selling author, a boldly imagined portrait of Virginia Woolf that sheds new light on the events that preceded her fatal immersion in the River Ouse in 1941

On April 18, 1941, twenty-two days after Virginia Woolf went for a walk near her weekend house in Sussex and never returned, her body was reclaimed from the River Ouse. Norah Vincent s Adeline reimagines the events that brought Woolf to the riverbank, offering us a denouement worthy of its protagonist.

With poetic precision and psychological acuity, Vincent channels Virginia and Leonard Woolf, T. S. and Vivienne Eliot, Lytton Strachey and Dora Carrington, laying bare their genius and their blind spots, their achievements andtheir failings, from the inside out.And haunting every page isAdeline, the name given to Virginia Stephen at birth, which becomes the source of Virginia sgreatest consolation, and hergreatest torment.

Intellectually and emotionally disarming, Adeline a vibrant portrait ofWoolf and her social circle, the infamous Bloomsbury Group, and a window into the darkness that both inspired and doomed them all is a masterpiece in its own right by one of our most brilliant and daring writers.
