More Description from Internet Sources--

In this haunting and compelling book, eminent psychiatrist Peter Dally explores the darker side of Virginia Woolf. Bringing together his knowledge as a doctor with his life-long fascination with Woolf's life and work, he sheds light on the manic depression that tormented her.

On three occasions Virginia went mad and she lived in fear of the return of this dreadful affliction. Yet the experience gave her extraordinary insights as well as new ideas that were to emerge in her writing.

But without the constant vigilance of her husband Leonard, it is doubtful she would have been so creatively productive. When events outside the couple's control led to Leonard's gradual withdrawal. Virginia found herself facing her madness alone, and with tragic results.

Compassionate and disturbing, this is a unique and fascinating study of Virginia Woolf.
