A book by any other name ….

It’s a monograph: “a specialist work of writing on a single subject or an aspect of a subject, usually by a single author.” But indulge me–it has an ISBN, an International Standard Book Number, so let’s call it a book–a small book, but a book (we won’t trivialize it with “booklet” or “bookette”). Thank you!

That said, I’m happy to announce that Virginia Woolf as Memoirist: ‘I am made and remade continually’ has just been released by Cecil Woolf Publishers in London. This is my second inclusion in the Bloomsbury Heritage Series, which includes more than 70 publications about the lives and work of Virginia Woolf and others in the Bloomsbury group.

Cecil Woolf is the nephew of Leonard Woolf and the last living link to Virginia Woolf; he proudly points to Virginia’s mentions of him in her diary as “the boy with the sloping nose.” Cecil’s wife, Jean Moorcroft Wilson, is the general editor of the series as well as a Woolfian author and biographer of World War I poets. Cecil and Jean crossed the pond earlier this month to honor us with their presence at the 25th Annual Conference on Virginia Woolf in Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania.


Here I am with the esteemed duo, displaying my newest addition.

More information about Cecil Woolf Publishers and the Bloomsbury Heritage Series is available at Blogging Woolf.

  3. Congratulations, Alice – this is wonderful! Can’t wait to read it. Fabulous picture too, his nose does slope a bit, and my goodness I love her brooch!

  4. Oh, and can you tell me where I can buy your book? Is there a link? Thanks. I’m keen to read Wilson’s forthcoming book on Edward Thomas, too, but that’s available for pre-order on Amazon.
