THE COMIC BIOGRAPHY
The dramatic life story of the author of Orlando, Mrs Dalloway and A room of One’s own, interpreted for the first time as a graphic novel
This graphic biography of Virginia Woolf sketches a detailed and sensitive picture of one of the literary giants of the 20th century and shows how central writing was to her life. Plagued by spiritual crises throughout her life, with her sharp pen, the renowned author nevertheless left her mark in a male-dominated world and was a pioneer in the fields of emancipation and feminism, sexuality and gender identity. Her long inner struggle ended with suicide – yet Virginia Woolf was not a victim, but a strong and feisty woman whose work still bears testimony to her genius.
For the first time, a graphic novel sheds light on the life of one of the most important female authors of the 20th century.
