Between The Acts, by Virginia Woolf

I thought this was really excellent – a short novel written and set just before the second world war, published shortly after the author’s death by her own hand; on the surface, it’s a story of manners about a village pageant for Empire Day, but in fact there are deep currents of violence, both sexual and colonial, running through it and colouring everything that happens for the attentive reader. A really disturbing book in some ways. I’m becoming a bit of a fan.

One thought on “Between The Acts, by Virginia Woolf

  1. Do you think the relative improvement in local councillor numbers for UKIP will affect their result?

    Similarly do you think the loss of almost all of their councillors will affect the BNP vote?

    I was under the impression that the BNP had hit some organisational and financial difficulties in the last few years and might be significantly weakened operationally as a result. Am I right? If so will this affect their vote?
