A stylistically innovative volume of short stories from the groundbreaking author of Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, and Orlando. First presented as one volume in 1921, Monday or Tuesday was the only collection of stories Virginia Woolf published in her lifetime. Written in her experimental, stream-of-consciousness style, these eight unconventional stories eschew traditional plot and character development in favor of interior thoughts, emotions, memories, and associations. From a heron&́#x80;™s in-flight perceptions in &́#x80;œMonday or Tuesday&́#x80; to a ghost couple searching for treasure in &́#x80;œA Haunted House,&́#x80; from a meditation on color as a catalyst for imagination and emotional connections in &́#x80;œBlue and Green&́#x80; to the invented stories of a narrator on a train observing a fellow passenger in &́#x80;œAn Unwritten Novel,&́#x80; Woolf&́#x80;™s poetic explorations take readers in directions previously unexamined, revealing an intensity of feeling and depth of insight that would continue to characterize her later work. Michael Cunningham, author of the Pulitzer Prize&́#x80;“winning novel The Hours, has said of Woolf: &́#x80;œShe was doing with language something like what Jimi Hendrix does with a guitar.&́#x80; Taken together, these lyrical and evocative stories create a rich mosaic of the artist&́#x80;™s radically unique sensibility. Monday or Tuesday includes &́#x80;œA Haunted House,&́#x80; &́#x80;œA Society,&́#x80; &́#x80;œMonday or Tuesday,&́#x80; &́#x80;œAn Unwritten Novel,&́#x80; &́#x80;œThe String Quartet,&́#x80; &́#x80;œBlue and Green,&́#x80; &́#x80;œKew Gardens,&́#x80; and &́#x80;œThe Mark on the Wall.&́#x80; This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
