Mrs Dalloway is now my absolutely favourite novel in the entire world. Ok, it hasn’t quite dethroned Jane Eyre (what could?) but it’s so transporting and ridiculously excellent. The writing, the characters, everything.
Oh, I’m in love. With both the book and the cover. Definitely one of the best Penguin covers I’ve seen.
To get a glimpse into what it’s like to do textual editing read Anne Fernham’s posts on her preparation for a new authoritative edition of Mrs Dalloway.
