These half dozen essays, originally commissioned in 1931 for the British Good Housekeeping,remind us again of Virginia Woolf's consummate gifts as an essayist. The seemingly effortless grace of these pieces is accented by Woolf's spare, colorist prose and her modest, conversational tone. The topics of the essays include sketches of life along the Thames and visits to the homes of famous writers. Francine Prose's insightful introduction places the collection within historical and aesthetic contexts.
