Adeline: A Novel of Virginia Woolf – Norah Vincent


On 18 April 1941, twenty-two days after Virginia Woolf went for a walk near her weekend house in Sussex and never returned, her body was reclaimed from the River Ouse. Adeline beautifully illuminates the period of Woolf’s greatest literary triumphs as it reimagines the events that led her to the riverbank.

Intellectually and emotionally disarming, Adeline is a vibrant portrait of Woolf and the Bloomsbury Group. With poetic precision and psychological acuity, Vincent channels Virginia and Leonard Woolf, T.S. and Vivienne Eliot, Lytton Strachey and Dora Carrington, laying bare their genius and bringing to life the story of those who, in Dorothy Parker’s words, ‘lived in squares, painted in circles, and loved in triangles’.
