Who, if anyone, was responsible when Virginia Woolf wandered across the water-meadows and threw herself in the river Ouse? By examining the various strains which led to Woolf's tragically ending her life — the true nature of her marriage, her complex relationship with Vita Sackville-West, the pangs of sexual insecurity, and the lack of self-esteem —noted psychoanalyst Alma H. Bond illustrates how these influences coalesced to bring Woolf's life to a logical ending. “…a masterpiece of its kind—a brilliant, original book that not only gives the reader new understanding of why Virginia Woolf committed suicide but also brings him new depths in the understanding of his own life…A flowing, emphatic style of writing that keeps you turning the page to learn more of the torment in Woolf’s life from infancy on that drove her to kill herself.” —Lucy Freeman, past President of Mystery Writers of America and author of The Beloved Prison: A Journey Through the Unknown Mind (St. Martin’s Press, 1989) “Alma Bond’s work on Virginia Woolf and the relationship between her early life experience and her profound creative talents is a tour de force.” —Natatlie Shainess, M.D., New York, New York “Outstanding—a profound and in-depth presentation.” —Barry M. Panter, M.D., Ph.D., President, American Institute of Medical Education, Burbank, California
