Three writers with a strong connection to the work of Virginia Woolf, Maggie Gee, Michael Whitworth and Priya Parmar, discuss the writer’s relationship with family and friends and her lasting impact on writers today.

Novelist Gee’s latest work, Virginia Woolf in Manhattan, imagines Woolf come back to life. It is a novel about female rivalry, friendships, mothers and daughters, and the possibility of a second life. Gee was chosen as one of Granta’s original best young novelists in 1983 and has written many acclaimed novels. She was the first female chair of the Royal Society of Literature.

Whitworth is an Oxford academic, author of Virginia Woolf in the Oxford World’s Classics Authors in Context series and editor of a number of Woolf editions.

Parmar’s novel, Vanessa and her Sister, imagines the early life of Vanessa Bell and Virginia Woolf as they bring together a glittering circle of artistic and bohemian friends in Bloomsbury. The novel explores the anguished relationship between the sisters.
