Last week I asked people to vote for what book I should read next. Readers chose The Hours by Michael Cunningham, which so far has been awesome! The book has three narrative strands — author Virginia Woolf writing Mrs. Dalloway, society woman Clarissa Vaughan planning a party, and 1950s housewife Laura Brown struggling with her picture-perfect suburban life.
The stories have already started to overlap and connect with one another, primarily through stories by Virginia Woolf and their characters. I already want to know so much; I feel like I’m missing details and jokes because I’m not as up on Virginia Woolf as I should be. It’s a great book anyway. I think I’ll have it done by the end of the week.
Since so many people have already read this book, instead of a traditional review, I want to solicit some questions from all of you. Leave a comment on this post with a question you want me to answer (preferably about The Hours, but I’ll take others I suppose) and I’ll go through the questions for my review.
Happy Sunday everyone!
