Virginia Woolf is brought back to life in an intertwining of her story with those of two more contemporary women. In Woolf’s life, she awakens one morning in London in 1923 with a dream that will become Mrs. Dalloway. In the present, Clarissa Vaughan is planning a party in Greenwich Village for her oldest love, a poet dying from AIDS. And in Los Angeles in 1949, Laura Brown is pregnant and unsettled, trying to prepare for her husband’s birthday, but wanting nothing more than to sit and read Woolf. [NoveList]
