Jacob's Room

by Virginia Woolf - £7.99  Melville House Publishing (2011)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781935554363 | ISBN 10: 1935554360

Jacob's Room was the first book in Virginia Woolf's unique, experimental style, making it an important text of early Modernism. Ostensibly, the story is about the life of Jacob Flanders, the title character, who is evoked purely by other characters' perceptions and memories of him. Jacob remains absent throughout.
 
Elegiac in tone, the work beautifully memorializes the longing and pain of a generation that lost so many of its promising young men to World War I.
