About the Author

Virginia Woolf (January 25, 1882 – March 28, 1941) was an English novelist and essayist regarded as one of the foremost modernist literary figures of the twentieth century. During the interwar period, Woolf was a significant figure in London literary society and a member of the Bloomsbury Group. Her most famous works include the novels Mrs Dalloway (1925), To the Lighthouse (1927), and Orlando (1928), and the book-length essay A Room of One's Own (1929) with its famous dictum, "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction".

Night and Day was the first work of fiction I read by Virginia Woolf and in this book I fell in love with her writing--which encouraged me to read her other famous works such as Orlando and Mrs.Dalloway. In this book Woolf compares and contrasts the lives of two very different woman from their intellectual abilities, their beliefs to their romances which intersects in the same man, causing one initial pain and the other eventual happiness. From that intersection the two women eventually decides on very different lives and paths for themselves. While Katherine Hilbery decides on her love for Ralph Denham and the two presumably have a happy and loving life together, Mary Datchet forgoes love for the rest of her life focusing all of her efforts, attention and time on woman suffrage movements. The language can be difficult at time and sometimes sentences can be paragraphs long. But any determined reader will make to the end due to the intricate plot lines, in-depth focus on characters and different points of views present in regards to women in society. I cherish this book and would recommend it to any 1920's fiction lover, especially to those who adore and admire Virginia Woolf.

With his gaze cast to the sky, he stood still in the middle of a park. His hands were stiffly placed in the pockets of his worn jeans as his stand off demeanor kept most people within a hundred yard radius of him. Slowly, he broke his statue pose and tilted his head down so his light eyes could scan the area with caution.

The brooding male walked in and glanced around at the people around him. Finding no one he was looking for, he wandered to a bench and sat down with his elbows on his knees. Today, wolfsbane wore a white t-shirt with his usual red and black flannel over it. And as usual, he wore dark colored jeans that sagged slightly as he sat.

So, I don't see another one of these people. <p> Harley bounced into the area, her striking blue and red pigtails cascading across her shoulders as her pale skin shimmered with dirt and make up from the moon.
