Quentin Crisp
Today’s Literary Birthday
British novelist, essayist and short story writer Virginia Woolf was born on this day in 1882. She is best known for her novels Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse and her book length essay A Room of One’s Own in which she observes, “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” An early feminist, Woolf had a long love affair with Vita Sackville-West for whom she wrote Orlando, a fanciful biography. Sackville-West’s son called it “the longest and most charming love letter in literature.”
