Vanessa and VirginiaSusan Sellers‘ new novel, Vanessa and Virginia, is said to provide a new angle on the relationship between Virginia Woolf and her elder sister Vanessa Bell because it is told from Vanessa’s pespective.

Although Sellers has published numerous non-fiction books as well as short stories, this is her first novel. It was published in the UK by two Ravens Press last June, and it will be published in the U.S. by Houghton Harcourt in May.

Sellers, who is professor of English and related literature at the University of St Andrews, is known as the co-editor of the Cambridge University Press editions of Virginia Woolf’s works. She is also a noted scholar on Hélène Cixous.

She will be at the Woolf and the City conference at Fordham University in June.
