9781846591990: Virginia Woolf in Manhattan

What if Virginia Woolf came back to life in the twenty-first century? Bestselling author Angela Lamb is going through a mid-life crisis. She dumps her irrepressible daughter Gerda at boarding school and flies to New York to pursue her passion for Woolf, whose manuscripts are held in a private collection. When a bedraggled Virginia Woolf herself materialises among the bookshelves and is promptly evicted, Angela, stunned, rushes after her on to the streets of Manhattan. Soon she is chaperoning her troublesome heroine as Virginia tries to understand the internet and scams bookshops with 'rare signed editions'. Then Virginia insists on flying with Angela to Istanbul, where she is surprised by love and steals the show at an international conference on - Virginia Woolf. Meanwhile, Gerda, ignored by her mother for days, has escaped from school and set off in hot pursuit. Virginia Woolf in Manhattan is a witty and profound novel about female rivalry, friendships, mothers and daughters, and the miraculous possibilities of a second chance at life.

Revue de presse :

'A witty book ... It's got everything in a novel that I really like' -- Jacqueline Wilson's Six Best Books, Express

'Audacious, playful and dazzlingly written' -- The Herald

'This giddily playful novel from Maggie Gee is a cunning what if: what if Virginia Woolf were to suddenly reappear in a library in modern-day Manhattan? - It's a gloriously funny, fleet-footed novel about the relationships between women and the ways literary heroes live on in our imaginations.' -- Metro

'Charming and funny ... If Woolf s intellectual discipline is missing, what must have made her a fascinating companion is not, and Gee s novel is a tribute to that aspect of her personality.' -- Independent

'Gee does a terrific (and puckishly poetic) job with Woolf's wit and acuity, her hoots of laughter and sudden fadings of joy - wickedly funny - this novel contains lines that sparkle' -- Sunday Telegraph

'I love the work of Maggie Gee: wickedly smart, funny and fearless, plus that rarest of all things, genuinely surprising. Read her' -- Patrick Ness

'Imaginative, amusing, masterful ... Gee's brilliant writing allows characters to leap off the page. The result is an exceptionally funny, incredibly witty and artfully crafted love letter to Woolf.' -- The Lady

'Brilliant - moving and clever, but most often is simply funny - Gee writes about Woolf with wit and affection, and has crafted an amusing and clever novel' -- Shiny New Books

'A remarkable feat ... Gee s strength as a writer is to allow the fantastical and plausible to coexist. ... [She] has made Woolf abundantly human once more in this exhilarating novel, with its passages of lyrical beauty that celebrate our material existence' -- Virginia Woolf Society of Great Britain

'Marvellously contemporary ... Virginia Woolf in Manhattan is facetious, creative, and brimming with a plethora of thought-provoking scenes. It is the first of Gee s books which I have read, but I can safely say that it certainly will not be the last.' -- Nudge Books
