About the Author

Hilary Macaskill is a freelance journalist and travel writer. She is the co-author with Molly Wood of Downhill All the Way: Walking with Donkeys on the Stevenson Trail (Frances Lincoln, 2006), and has written Agatha Christie at Home (Frances Lincoln, 2009), Charles Dickens at Home (Frances Lincoln, 2012) and Daphne du Maurier at Home (Frances Lincoln, 2013). She lives in London.

Cecil Woolf, nephew of Leonard, helped as a boy at the Hogarth Press and started his own publishing company in the 1950s, while living in Leonard's London home. His first Bloomsbury book in 1987 was Virginia Woolf, Life and London, by his wife Jean Moorcroft Wilson. They worked together 'at the same table on which the first Hogarth press stood.'

Reviews

* Sussex Life *

"Intriguing insight into her domestic life . . . rich with quotes."

* House & Garden *

"A confident, well-written book with a whiff of that seductive 'spirit of place'."

* Times Literary Supplement *

"I can't really recommend Virginia Woolf at Home highly enough for its excellent combination of the visual and the written...if you want a look into the life of Virginia Woolf, both the woman and the writer, this is a great place to start. It's informative, evocative, readable and very lovely to look at."

* Kaggy's Bookish Ramblings blog *

"Ms Macaskill handles her material with elegance and a light touch."

* Country Life *

"Hilary Macaskill is... an indefatigable sleuth."
