In The Hours, Michael Cunninghamwidely praised as one of the most gifted writers of his generationdraws inventively on the life and work of Virginia Woolf to tell the story of a group of contemporary characters struggling with the conflicting claims of love and inheritance, hope and despair. The narrative of Woolf ’s last days before her suicide early in World War II counterpoints the fictional stories of Richard, a famous poet whose life has been shadowed by his talented and troubled mother, and his lifelong friend Clarissa, who strives to forge a balanced and rewarding life in spite of the demands of friends, lovers and family.
Passionate, profound and deeply moving, The Hours is Cunningham’s most remarkable achievement to date.
