Synopsis

Virginia Woolf, figurehead of the Bloomsbury Group and an innovative writer whose experimental style and lyrical prose ensured her position as one of the most influential of modern novelists, was also firmly anchored in the reality of the houses she lived in and those she visited regularly. Detailed and evocative accounts appear in her letters and diaries, as well as in her fiction, where they appear as backdrops or provide direct inspiration.







Hilary Macaskill examines the houses that meant the most to Woolf, including:







22 Hyde Park Gate, London - where Virginia Woolf was born in 1882







Talland House, St Ives, Cornwall - the summer home of Virginia's family until 1895







46 Gordon Square, Bloomsbury, London - the birthplace of the Bloomsbury Group - Virginia lived here from 1904 to 1912







Hogarth House, Richmond, London - where the newly married Woolfs set up home and founded the Hogarth Press







Asheham House, East Sussex - the summer home of the Woolfs, 1912-1919







52 Tavistock Square, London - a return to Bloomsbury, the heart of London







Monk's House, Rodmell, East Sussex - where Virginia lived from 1919 until her death in 1941

Hilary Macaskill is a freelance journalist and travel writer. She is the co-author with Molly Wood of Downhill All the Way: Walking with Donkeys on the Stevenson Trail (Frances Lincoln, 2006), and has written Agatha Christie at Home (Frances Lincoln, 2009), Charles Dickens at Home (Frances Lincoln, 2012) and Daphne du Maurier at Home (Frances Lincoln, 2013). She lives in London. Cecil Woolf, nephew of Leonard, helped as a boy at the Hogarth Press and started his own publishing company in the 1950s, while living in Leonard's London home. His first Bloomsbury book in 1987 was Virginia Woolf, Life and London, by his wife Jean Moorcroft Wilson. They worked together `at the same table on which the first Hogarth press stood.'
