Summary

Summary

Opening with an evocation of Virginia Woolf's last days before her suicide in 1941, The Hours imagines the literary idol back to life, in a gray suburban London morning in 1923 when she awakens from a dream that soon leads to Mrs. Dalloway. Artfully intertwining her story with that of a present-day book editor and a distraught housewife living in postwar Los Angeles, the novel eventually merges the three womens' lives into one unexpected and heartbreaking moment.
