This was a very interesting book to read. A novel, from Vanessa's point of view, about her sister, Virginia Wolff, and the 2 brothers. The author portrays the characters and their friends as a close group, discussing everything from art to writing, marriage, and even sexuality. Parmar also utilizes diaries and all types of correspondence between the characters to tell the story. I enjoyed how this worked for the book. Even though the story is mainly diary pages for Vanessa, the correspondence shows so much of the other characters and fit well
