Like Mrs. Dalloway, this book confines its action to a single day in London and its environs, drifting among the members of the Dalloway house as they prepare a party for the Dalloways' 30th wedding anniversary.

Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). Like Mrs. Here, however, the primary focus is on Richard Dalloway, former Parliament member, doting husband, a man trying desperately to manage an affair that threatens his family on several levels.

A virtuoso performance of postmodern daring, Mr. Dalloway offers a rich augmentation of Virginia Woolf's classic novel.

It is June 29, 1927ÑRichard and Clarissa Dalloway's thirtieth anniversary and also a day of historical significance. Richard has arranged a surprise party for his wife. As he leaves their house in Westminster to buy flowers for the party, his thoughts turn to Robert Davies (Robbie), a young editor at Faber with whom he has been having an affair off and on for many years. Because of Richard's efforts to contain their relationship, Robbie has exposed their affair in a letter to Clarissa, who tells her husband that she "understands" And today Richard, despite his misgivings, finds himself on his way to Robbie's house-only to be shaken by the discovery that Robbie is not there.

As does the Woolf novel, Mr. Dalloway takes place within a single day, unfolding prismatically with a simultaneity of events: Clarissa walks in London and remembers her courtship with Richard; their daughter Elizabeth searches for answers about her eccentric history tutor's somewhat mysterious and premature death; and a determined and drunken Robert Davies has decided to crash Richard's party, dressed all in white satin, no less! As the novella moves toward its surprising climax, it revisits several of Woolf's celebrated characters-Sally Seton (now Lady Rosseter), Hugh Whitbread, Lady Bruton-while introducing new ones, such as the Sapphist couple Katherine Truelock and Eleanor Gibson, and the strange and beautiful Sasha Richardson.

Imaginative and formally bold as it refracts Woolf's fiction to invent a story completely Lippincott's own, Mr. Dalloway rides forward on waves of a masterfully complex and musical prose, full of wit, linguistic verve, and startling imagery.

Robin Lippincott is the author of The Real, True Angel, a collection of short stories published in 1996 by Fleur-de-Lis Press. His fiction and nonfiction have appeared in The New York Times Book Review, The American Voice, The Literary Review, Provincetown Arts, and many other magazines; he was awarded fellowships to Yaddo in 1997 and 1998.

Goodman
The ineffective attempt to imitate the style of Virginia Woolf's MRS. DALLOWAY in the opening pages of Lippincott's 1999 novella comes off as parasitic. Once the faux Woolfian syntax is dropped, the book becomes more interesting, telling stories of same-sex love often marginalized or eclipsed by the marriage plot of mainstream literature and culture. In the tradition of Jean Rhys's rewriting of JANE EYRE in WIDE SARGASSO SEA, Robin Lippincott changes the focus on a well-known set of characters and participates in what Woolf calls, in A ROOM OF ONE OWN, writing's secret of perpetual life--its capacity to generate more writing. Clarissa Dalloway, dressed in yellow, is the sun; her husband's lover, dressed in white, is the moon. During an eclipse party, Mr. Dalloway aligns with both of them.

A beautifully crafted novel, that rethinks Virginia Woolf's Dalloways. It led me back to Mrs Dalloway, which is still a great pleasure to read.

Robin Lippincott's astonishing courage to reinvent Virginia Woolf's novel, MRS. DALLOWAY, by shifting the story's narration to that of Mr. Dalloway is surpassed only by the astounding fact that he succeeds magnificently. The literary alchemy of his protagonist's interior landscape and the characters that people his daily life are masterfully interwoven and choreographed to the plaintive lyricism of Mr. Lippincott's elegant score. Like a fine jeweler, he appraises the human heart, turning it this way and that, now revealing the dark fissures of its wounds, now the glorious light of its hopes and always accompanied by his compassion, love, and generosity of spirit.

Lippincott's novella is a continuation of sorts of Virginia Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway", except from the point of view from Mr Dalloway. The event in this book is the couple's anniversary, which corresponds with a solar eclipse. The author skilfully explores the nature of love, and the nature of women and men. Richard Dalloway adores his wife Clarissa, but he also loves Robert Davies. The three paths converge and come to a sort of beautiful moment, framed by the eclipse. It may be not quite as evocative and potent as Cunningham's "The Hours" or Woolf's books, but this book is still exceptional and beautiful. A book to enjoy and revisit.

Mr. Dalloway exposes the protagonist in a delicate and subtle way, just as Mrs. Dalloway was exposed. We are privy to his most intimate thoughts, as well as to a secret about his life that not only makes sense but is something I believe Woolf would have developed had she been so inclined. The story line is original, fresh, yet echoes the Woolfian tone so well that it often made me feel as though Virginia had come back, reincarted in Lippincott's fingers, to add yet another chapter to her already magnificent body of work. I was not only impressed by Mr. Dalloway, but enthralled. The writing, the story, the other characters--all were solidly developed and superb. BRAVO!
