The letters of Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolf by V Sackville-West( Book )

"Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf met at a dinner party given by Clive Bell in London on December 14, 1922. Their love affair grew out of an instant friendship. Virginia confided her impressions of Vita to her diary: "She is a pronounced Sapphist, & may...have an eye on me, old though I am. Nature might have sharpened her faculties. Snob as I am, I trace her passions 500 years back, & they become romantic to me, like old yellow wine."" "Vita was quite taken with Virginia as well. She wrote to her husband Harold Nicholson: "I simply adore Virginia Woolf, and so would you. You would fall quite flat before her charm and personality...Mrs Woolf is so simple: she does give the impression of something big. She is utterly unaffected...At first you think she is plain, then a sort of spiritual beauty imposes itself on you, and you find a fascination in watching her... She is both detached and human, silent till she wants to say something, and then says it supremely well. She is quite old. I've rarely taken such a fancy to anyone, and I think she likes me. At least she's asked me to Richmond where she lives. Darling, I have quite lost my heart."" "The Letters of Vita Sackville-West to Virginia Woolf contains over 500 letters, both from Vita to Virginia and from Virginia to Vita in reply, a monument to a passionate relationship that lasted until Woolf's death in 1941."--BOOK JACKET
Between women : biographers, novelists, critics, teachers, and artists write about their work on women by Carol Ascher( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 1993 in English and German and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conceived with malice by Louise A DeSalvo( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mercurial relationship between D. H. Lawrence, a coal miner's son, and his patron Lady Ottoline Morrell, whose list of lovers included Bertrand Russell, Roger Fry, and Henry Lamb, began as a union of "soulmates" but deteriorated into an enmity that spawned Lawrence's vicious portrait of her as the morally corrupt Hermione Roddice in Women in Love. The legendary writer Djuna Barnes reveals the psychic wound that lay at the core of her classic novels Nightwood and Ryder - and that at last was excruciatingly exposed in her final major work, The Antiphon, the amazing play that discloses a family history of multiple incest and child abuse, making her pain-filled and boldly experimental work all too comprehensible
Writing as a way of healing : how telling our stories transforms our lives by Louise A DeSalvo( Book )

Melymbrosia by Virginia Woolf( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Virginia Woolf completed Melymbrosia in 1912 when she was thirty years old. The story concerned the emotional and sexual awakening of a young English woman traveling abroad, and bristled with social commentary on issues as varied as homosexuality, the suffrage movement, and colonialism. Warned by colleagues that publishing an outspoken indictment of Britain could prove disastrous to her fledgling career, Woolf revised the novel extensively, omitting much of the political candor. In 1915, the quieter book was published as Woolf's first novel under the title The Voyage Out."--Jacket

Adultery by Louise A DeSalvo( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and Chinese and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By filtering the story of her own husband's affair through others' stories, DeSalvo revels in the always-exciting fantasy of adultery and reels from its usually painful reality. While she recognizes the seduction of the Madame Bovary risk-all-for-passion story of adultery, she shows us that it is not the only one."--BOOK JACKET. "For anyone who has experienced adultery - from either side - DeSalvo offers a sexy, nonjudgmental, realistic vision of fidelity and marriage."--Jacket
The art of slow writing : reflections on time, craft, and creativity by Louise A DeSalvo( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a series of conversational observations and meditations on the writing process, The Art of Slow Writing examines the benefits of writing slowly. DeSalvo advises her readers to explore their creative process on deeper levels by getting to know themselves and their stories more fully over a longer period of time. She writes in the same supportive manner that encourages her students, using the slow writing process to help them explore the complexities of craft. The Art of Slow Writing is the antidote to self-help books that preach the idea of fast-writing, finishing a novel a year, and quick revisions. DeSalvo makes a case that more mature writing often develops over a longer period of time and offers tips and techniques to train the creative process in this new experience. DeSalvo describes the work habits of successful writers (among them, Nobel Prize laureates) so that readers can use the information provided to develop their identity as writers and transform their writing lives. It includes anecdotes from classic American and international writers such as John Steinbeck, Henry Miller, Virignia Woolf and D.H. Lawrence as well as contemporary authors such as Michael Chabon, Junot Diaz, Jeffrey Eugenides, Ian McEwan, and Salman Rushdie. DeSalvo skillfully and gently guides writers to not only start their work, but immerse themselves fully in the process and create texts they will treasure"--
