Becoming Virginia WoolfBecoming Virginia Woolf: Her Early Diaries and the Diaries She Read by Barbara Lounsberry, is out this month from the University Press of Florida.

According to the publisher’s website, “Starting with fourteen-year-old Woolf’s first palm-sized leather diary, Becoming Virginia Woolf illuminates how her private and public writing was shaped by the diaries of other writers including Samuel Pepys, James Boswell, the French Goncourt brothers, Mary Coleridge, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Woolf’s “diary parents”–Sir Walter Scott and Fanny Burney.
