Between the Acts
WITH INTRODUCTIONS BY JACKIE KAY AND LISA JARDINE
'One of her most original novels' Michael Holroyd
A village pageant is to take place at Pointz Hall, the country home of the Oliver family for time beyond memory. Written and directed by the energetic Miss La Trobe, the pageant will take in the history of England from the Middle Ages. The past blends with the present and art blends with life in a narrative full of invention, affection and lyricism.
Between the Acts was Virginia Woolf's final novel, and this edition contains the original text that she was working on when she died.
