Rich and alive with descriptions of the bustling streets of old Cairo and the vast foreboding desert surrounding it - 'Iris and Ruby' is a stirring story of mothers daughters and the distance between three generations of one family. Stiflingly quiet and claustrophobic Iris Black's Cairo house is suddenly disturbed by the unexpected arrival of her troubled and wilful granddaughter Ruby. Teenage Ruby has run away from England to seek solace with the grandmother she hasn't seen for many years. An unlikely bond is formed as the two open themselves up to one another. Ruby helps Iris document her deteriorating memories of the glittering cosmopolitan Cairo of World War Two a time when she lost her heart to her one true love - the enigmatic Captain Xan Molyneux - and then lost him to the ravages of the war. Iris' early devastation shapes her own heart and that of her daughter and granddaughter in turn.-...

Hermione Lee sees Virginia Woolf afresh in her historical setting and as a vital figure for our times. Her book moves freely between a richly detailed life-story and new attempts to understand crucial questions - the impact of her childhood the cause and nature of her madness and suicide the truth about her marriage her feelings for women her prejudies and obsessions. This is a vivid close-up portrait returning to primary sources and showing Woolf as occupying a distinct even uneasy position with 'Bloomsbury'. It is a writer's life illustrating how the concerns of her work arise and develop and a political life which establishes Woolf as a radically sceptical subversive courageous feminist. Incorporating newly discovered sources and illustrated with photos and drawings never used before this biography is a revelation -informed intelligent and moving.
