To the Lighthouse
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: November 2010
Duration: 7 hours 37 minutes
To the Lighthouse is at once a vivid impressionist depiction of a family holiday, and a meditation on a marriage, on parenthood and childhood, on grief, tyranny, and bitterness. Its use of stream of consciousness, reminiscence, and shifting perspectives gives the novel an intimate, poetic essence, and at the time of publication in 1927 it represented an utter rejection of Victorian and Edwardian literary values. One of Time Magazine's Best 100 English-Language Novels from 1923-2005.
