About the Book
This brilliant novel explores the hidden springs of thought and action in one day of a woman's life. Direct and vivid in her account of the details of Clarissa Dalloway's preparations for a party she is to give that evening, Woolf ultimately managed to reveal much more. For it is the feeling behind these daily events that gives MRS. DALLOWAY its texture and richness and makes it so memorable. Foreword by Maureen Howard.
