The Years

The Years

'A brilliant fantasia of all Time's problems, age and youth, change and permanence, truth and illusion' The Times Literary Supplement

The Years is the story of the Pargiter family - their intimacies and estrangements, anxieties and triumphs - mapped out against the bustling rhythms of London's streets during the first decades of the twentieth century, as their Victorian upbringing gives way to a new world, where the rules of etiquette have shifted from the drawing room to the air-raid shelter. Virginia Woolf's penultimate novel is a celebration of the resilience of the individual amid time, change, life, death and renewal.

Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Jeri Johnson
