About the Author
Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882, the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen, first editor of the Dictionary of National Biography. From 1915, when she published her first novel, The Voyage Out, Virginia Woolf maintained an astonishing output of fiction, literary criticism, essays and biography. In 1912 she married Leonard Woolf, and in 1917 they founded the Hogarth Press.
Virginia Woolf suffered a series of mental breakdowns throughout her life, and on 28 March 1941 she committed suicide.
Jan Morris, who is Anglo-Welsh by parentage, divides her time between her library-house in North Wales, her dacha in the Black Mountains of South Wales, and travel abroad. Besides her acclaimed Pax Britannica trilogy, she has written books on Wales, Venice, Oxford, Spain, Manhattan, Hong Kong and Sydney, together with two autobiographical works, seven volumes of collected travel essays and the fictional Last Letters from Hav, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize. She is an Honorary Doctor of Letters of the University of Wales, and she has recently published a book about Admiral 'Jacky' Fisher.
