Synopsis

"Mrs Dalloway's Party" is a forgotten classic, and an enchanting piece of work by one of our most acclaimed twentieth century writers. A sequence of seven short stories that were written by Woolf in the same period as Mrs Dalloway - the opening story in the collection was originally intended to be the first chapter of the novel - they beautifully showcase the author's fascination with parties and with all the emotions and anxieties which surround these social occasions. In "The New Dress", a nervous young woman frets that her fellow guests are laughing at her yellow silk dress while "Together and Apart" explores what happens to two people meeting for the first time in Clarissa Dalloway's drawing room. In this collection of stories, Virginia Woolf created a microcosm of society out of the excitement, the fluctuations of mood and temper and the heightened emotions of the party.

Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882, the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen, first editor of The Dictionary of National Biography. From 1915, when she published her first novel, The Voyage Out, Virginia Woolf maintained an astonishing output of fiction, literary criticism, essays and biography. In 1912 she married Leonard Woolf, and in 1917 they founded The Hogarth Press. Virginia Woolf suffered a series of mental breakdowns throughout her life, and on 28 March 1941 she committed suicide.
