Publisher's Summary

The Voyage Out is Virginia Woolf's haunting tale about a naïve young woman's sea voyage from London to a small resort on the South American coast. In symbolic, lyrical, and intoxicating prose, her outward journey begins to mirror her internal voyage into adulthood as she searches for her personal identity, grapples with love, and learns how to face life intellectually and emotionally. Its wit and exquisiteness and its profound depth and insight into humanity will capture the imagination of the listener.

A very slow build, as is Woolf's wont, but a deeply satisfying, hypnotic story. Stevenson's narration is pitch perfect.

a simple story of human interaction rendered with all of the grandeur and insipidity of all of us. A precise and powerfully moving rendition of our natures.
Juliet Stevenson did credit to the writing with every shaped syllable spoken. Brava!
