About the Author
(Adeline) Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) was an English novelist and essayist, and regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a member of the Bloomsbury Group. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs. Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927) and Orlando (1928), and the booklength essay A Room of One's Own (1929), with its famous dictum, "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."
Kate Flint is Provost's Professor of English and Art History at the University of Southern California.

The storyline of Jacob's Room follows the life of Jacob Flanders from adolescence through his time in college and then to adulthood. It is narrated in the main from a female perspective by the different characters who knew him best thus the readers interpretation of Jacob is formed from an eclectic mix of opinions. I do not feel this is a bad thing as different readers will gain different viewpoints from the novel. In part replicating how individuals perceive differently from the information and environment that is presented to them. Even though the style of this novel may differ from her earlier works it is still worth reading if you want to gain a fuller representation and appreciation of Virginia Woolf's literary output.
