Award-winning writer Alexandra Harris shows how Virginia Woolf's classic "Mrs. Dalloway" completely re-imagined what a novel might be and pioneers a flowing stream of consciousness style. Using original manuscripts, diaries, and notebooks, Harris argues that the novel also allowed Woolf to creatively channel her own mental illness into the character of Septimus Smith, and in so doing, helped keep herself sane. Part of "The Secret Life of Books" series.
