May 14th was the anniversary of the publication of Mrs. Dalloway, so I wrote up a little essay in honor of the anniversary. You can read it at The Awl. And it's been republished at this lovely website of London Fictions, a companion to the new book, London Fictions--essays about more than two dozen London novels: looks great.
I spare you the twists and turns of my cogitations, for no conclusion was found on the road to Headingly, and I ask you to suppose that I soon found out my mistake about the turning and retraced my steps to Fernham.
--Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own (1929)
