Combining his knowledge as a doctor and a lifelong fascination with Virginia Woolf's life and work, eminent psychiatrist Peter Dally offers a haunting and compelling look at the depression that tormented Virginia Woolf through her adult years. He discusses the three occasions when Virginia went mad, which terrified Virginia, and through the experiences offered extraordinary insight into her craft, Woolf lived in constant fear of her dreadful affliction. Compassionate and disturbing, this study is the first to look at Virginia Woolf's life from the perspective of her illness. Black & white photos are included at the end. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
