Here is a fun Woolf sighting that would have been buried in this week’s long list if Alice Lowe hadn’t called my attention to it with her comment.

Titled “Bloomsbury Heads West,” this short story published on the Seven Days website, transports Virginia Woolf to the 21st-century American West, where she appears in the form of a young woman named Darla who dresses, thinks, sounds and acts like Woolf. Vita Sackville-West, Vanessa and Clive Bell and Lytton Strachey appear as part of the gang as well.

Of course, it’s only natural that Alice would hone in on this sighting. As the author of Beyond the Icon: Virginia Woolf in Contemporary Fiction, No. 58 in Cecil Woolf’s Bloomsbury Heritage Series, she keeps her eyes peeled for just this type of thing.

Thanks for the alert, Alice!
