Virginia Woolf's first novel, published in 1915, is a haunting exploration of a young woman's mind, signalling the beginning of her fascination with capturing the mysteries and complexities of the inner life. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. Moments of Being contains Virginia Woolf's only autobiographical writing. In "Reminiscences," the first of five pieces, she focuses on the death of her mother, "the greatest disaster that could happen," and its effect on her father, the demanding Victorian patriarch.

For anyone interested in the social background of the period 1866-1934, this is a very interesting and insightful book. Even the omissions - Woolf does not discuss Fry's family, his father and sisters, though they were important in themselves and important to him - even these omissions are interesting. Apparently, the Modernist project can describe the move away childhood and childhood family and the formation of the independent adult but not the return as an independent adult to those same people, places, values and social institutions.

This biography is written by one of the best writers of the 20th century and concerns one of the most influential art critics of visual art. Roger Fry loved traditional Italian art and was converted through a very gradual and natural process to become an advocate for modern art. Roger Fry came to see and apprecaite his contemporaries in visual art as making and having made important contributions. Time has proved Roger Fry correct and his critics wrong. Who among us doesn't not know that van Gogh, Gaugain and Cezanne are important artists? Virginia Woolf is a perceptive and excellent writer. This is her only bow to biography. It is a pleasure to read about a significant personality written by such a good writer.
