Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf

Mrs Dalloway (1925) is a novel by Virginia Woolf that details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, a fictional high-society woman in post-World War I England. It is one of Woolf's best-known novels. Created from two short stories, "Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street" and the unfinished "The Prime Minister", the novel's story is of Clarissa's preparations for a party of which she is to be hostess. With the interior perspective of the novel, the story travels forwards and back in time and in and out of the characters' minds to construct an image of Clarissa's life and of the inter-war social structure.

    Emily, it's not a requirement to complete the book, so if you don't mind spoilers you're still welcome to join us. usually (or at least often) at least one of us doesn't get all the way through a book by meeting time.

    Sorry I started the book but didn't make it very far as I was also in the process of moving to Cambridge :/ Next time for sure!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
