Overall, a fantastic copy. Kirkpatrick A5a. Woolmer 17. Monday or Tuesday is a collection of eight of Woolf's short stories. In addition to the title story "Monday or Tuesday," this volume contains "A Haunted House," "A Society," "The String Quartet," "Blue & Green," and three previously published stories. Monday or Tuesday marked an experimental departure from the realism that hallmarked Woolf's earlier texts Night and Day and The Voyage Out. Similarly, Vanessa Bell's striking black and white woodcut engravings that illustrate this volume are stylistically different from her usually colorful paintings. Although she wrote short stories and sketches throughout her writing career, this is the only collection to be published during Woolf's lifetime. Item #VW137
