Granta, the British magazine of new writing,  has published online Helen Dunmore’s introduction to a new paperback edition of Virginia Woolf’s novel To the Lighthouse, which is part of the Orange Inheritance Collection.

Online access to the To the Lighthouse introduction is available in conjunction with Granta’s new summer issue, The F Word.

Thanks to Mark Hussey for the news.
