      In The Hours, Michael Cunningham draws inventively on the life and work of Virginia Woolf to tell the story of a group of contemporary characters who are struggling with the conflicting claims of love and inheritance, hope and despair…

      Selected by Mark Redmayne: Executive Assistant / Marketing Associate: "I picked up 'The Hours' from the library when I found out they were making a movie starring some of my favourite stars. I can read this book over and over. I'm a huge fan of Michael Cunningham's writing style and any story which contains three interweaving plots. You don't have to know anything about Virginia Woolf to enjoy this book."

      “Maybe there is nothing, ever, that can equal the recollection of having been young together. Maybe it’s as simple as that.” The Hours: A Novel ~ Michael Cunningham. Pinner writes: "Draws inventively on the life & work of Virginia Woolf to tell the story of a group of contemporary characters struggling w/ the conflicting claims of love, inheritance, hope & despair. Cunningham took Woolf's novel, Mrs. Dalloway, & explored themes that she was not able to fully explore. It is beautifully written."

    I love this book. Gilbert writes so beautifully of Conway that--by the time I finished reading--I was almost ready to move into a tipi on Turtle Island.
