This is a page for the 2016 #Woolfalong schedule.
Please feel free to add links to Virgina Woolf posts in the comments box below any of my #Woolfalong posts/reviews.
Phase 1 – January/February – Getting started with a famous Woolf novel – To the Lighthouse or Mrs Dalloway
Phase 2 – March/April – beginnings and endings – The Voyage Out/ Night and Day (Woolf’s first and second novels – or Between the Acts – Woolf’s final novel
Phase 3 – May/June – shorter fiction – any collection of short stories. This list of possibles from Wikipedia:
• Kew Gardens (1919)
• Monday or Tuesday (1921)
• A Haunted House and Other Short Stories (1944)
• Mrs Dalloway’s Party (1973)
• The Complete Shorter Fiction (1985)
• Carlyle’s House and Other Sketches (2003)
Oxford World Classics now produce a collection called The Mark on the Wall and other short Fiction – though I don’t know which stories it contains.
Phase 4 – July/August – biographies – either Flush, Orlando or a biography of Virginia Woolf. Hermione Lee’s biography is generally well thought off I believe though long, I once read Nigel Nicolson’s (Vita Sackville West’s son) biography and it is considerably shorter than the Hermione Lee.
Phase 5 – September/ October nonfiction –essays or diaries. Any essay collection you fancy – there are a lot to choose from but you might want to consider: A Room of One’s Own, Three Guineas, The Common Reader or Virginia Woolf’s diaries. There seem to be a couple of diary collections, including Vintage books Selected Diaries and Persephone book’s A writer’s Diary (edited by Leonard Woolf).
Phase 6 – November/December – another novel – The Years/ Jacobs Room/ The Waves
