To read 'Moments of Being' is not an exercise in the prurient, but to gain an understanding of the inner life of an extraoprdinary artist and human being.
Her writings are so moving the reader can see what life was like during those times. Virginia Woolf was so ahead of her time. I love her quote, "For most of history, Anonymous was a woman." She also states, "I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realizes an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past."
"Language is wine upon the lips." shows how she can play with words to create the picture she wants. Always truthful, "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction."
A must for the Virginia Woolf collectors, literature students, and those who love great writing!

I liked this, not so much the first part of the memoir, but the other sections were better. It made Virginia more of a real person to me.Published on January 28, 2014 by Deborah M. Rodriguez
