Staff Reviews


“In The Years, instead of following a single mind, or a few minds in chorus, Virginia Woolf swallows a city. How, she wonders, does a city think? Does it consider its own death? How is it both theater for and symbol of decay? Such a vast thing is a city, how many seperate melodies – Virginia tracks them all like fine threats, and makes them intimate.” 

— Matthew

— From STAFF PICKS

Description


The principal theme of this ambitious book is Time, threading together three generations of an upper-class English family, the Pargiters. The characters come and go, meet, talk, think, dream, grow older, in a continuous ritual of life that eludes meaning.
