Read full description of the books:
Not as good as I remembered it. For the most part interesting rather than inspired. But then Virginia Woolf never intended this collection of memoirs to form a book. That said, how I’d love it if a member of my family had written such a detailed memoir of another era.
What’s striking is how one individual circles all her recollections like a menacing fin. George Duckworth, her considerably older stepbrother, once made her stand on a chair and put his hands all over her young body. It would appear he continued to take liberties with her body as she grew older. He’s portrayed as the epitome of everything Woolf was to fight against in her life. A stickler for tradition, convention, appearances. A social climber and a dullard. More than once she was to attribute her breakdowns to what she suffered at his hands. The rage she felt though seems dormant, drugged, buried beneath the determination of the artist in her to always write beautiful or humorous sentences.
Probably the most fascinating facet of this book is reading first-hand accounts of scenes that were deployed and transmuted in her novels, primarily To the Lighthouse. It becomes still more clear how deeply rooted this novel is in her own childhood and how it dramatises her expulsion from this childhood.
