Description

‘Virginia Woolf wanted to write about the vast unknown uncertain continent that is the world and us in it’ Jeanette Winterson, from her introduction to The Waves

The Waves is an astonishingly beautiful and poetic novel. It begins with six children playing in a garden by the sea and follows their lives as they grow up and experience friendship, love and grief at the death of their beloved friend Percival.
Regarded by many as her greatest work, The Waves is also seen as Virginia Woolf’s response to the loss of her brother Thoby, who died when he was twenty-six.
