A Book Extravaganza - featuring classics and some of my favorite books
Classic: The Voyage Out by Virginia Woolf
Woolf’s first novel is a haunting book, full of light and shadow. It takes Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose and their niece, Rachel, on a sea voyage from London to a resort on the South American coast. “It is a strange, tragic, inspired book whose scene is a South American not found on any map and reached by a boat which would not float on any sea, an American whose spiritual boundaries touch Xanadu and Atlantis” (E. M. Forster).
