backcover text:
'You have given a portrait of mother which is more like her to me than anything I could ever have conceived of as possible.'
So wrote Vanessa Bell to Virginia Woolf in the spring of 1927, on the publication of To the Lighthouse. Based on the author's childhood experiences, the novel tells the story of the Ramsay family on holiday in Skye and of a promised journey to the lighthouse that only takes place years later. Written with an astonishing and beautiful lyricism, it is told almost entirely through the reflection of its characters.
'To the Lighthouse is the story of a marriage and a childhood. It is a lamentation of loss and grief for powerful, loved, dead, parents ... It is, less apparently, about the English class structure and its radical break with Victorianism after the First World War' - Hermione Lee in her Introduction.

second hand Penguin paperback from 1992 or so
