To The Lighthouse - Virginia Woolf, Eudora Welty I'm embarrassed to say that even though I have a BA in Literature and am a lifelong obsessive reader, I just don't get Virginia Woolf. I want to. I'm fascinated by her life, her circle of friends, and her era, but I find her writing impenetrable and thus boring. Just thinking about it makes me yawn.
