Review by

These six essays, written in 1931, were first published in Good Housekeeping in 1931-1932. The essays were inspired by Woolfs favorite walks in London. Her love of London is evident in all the essays. I found these essays more accessible than any of her novels that I've attempted. (I've started three, never getting very far before giving up).

Review by

A delightful, slim compilation of Virginia Woolf's short essays about London and London life, originally published in Good Housekeeping magazine 1931-1932. A joy to read as her writing on London is so evocative.
