"This story of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s cocker spaniel, Flush, enchants right from the opening pages. Although Flush has adventures of his own with bullying dogs, horrid maids, and robbers, he also provides the reader with a glimpse into Browning’s life." (Goodreads).
Virginia Woolf is considered one of the most significant modernist writers of 20th century literature. In addition to 9 novels, she wrote prolifically on artistic theory, literary criticism, feminism and women’s writing. She wrote short fiction, biographical work, and numerous published letters. She played a central role in the Bloomsbury Group, and was one of the first to use the ‘stream of consciousness’ narrative device. Her intense intimate relationship with Vita Sackville-West was thoroughly documented in their letters and diaries, and she is widely considered a queer literary icon.
