The Waves, Virginia Woolf

Found it in my inventory today. What a gift.

Even though mine is only a First American Edition, not Hogarth Press, I can’t quite price it to sell.

In my late teens Virginia Woolf, Kate Bush, James Joyce, Billy Bragg, Joni Mitchell and Prufrock were my best friends. <heart>, as the kids say.  I still cry every time I watch the movie Orlando, one of the few movies that take liberties with a great book yet capture the point beautifully.
