"To the Lighthouse
is one of the greatest elegies in the
English language, a book which transcends time." -Margaret Drabble
"Without question one of the two or three finest novels of the twentieth century. Woolf comments on the most pressing dramas of our human predicament: war, mortality, family, love. If you're like me you'll come back to this book often, always astounded, always moved, always refreshed." -Rick Moody
"[Woolf's] people are astoundingly real...The tragic futility, the absurdity, the pathetic beauty, of life-we experience all of this in our sharing of seven hours of Mrs. Ramsay's wasted or not wasted existence.
We have seen, through her, the world." -Conrad Aiken
