Virginia Woolf and Alice Munro in conversation

March 11, 2019

Virginia Woolf and Alice Munro discuss the challenges of being a writer when you’re a woman.

It’s been 90 years since Woolf published, A Room of One’s Own, and 51 years since Munro wrote her short story, “The Office.”

I brought them together because the questions they raised about solitude and productivity are still just as pressing.

Things I think about.
