a good find in the main library's new arrivals section today. "virginia woolf. the will to create as a woman" by ruth gruber.
incidently, in 1931, aged 20, gruber was the youngest person ever to receive a doctorate. she met woolf when she was 19... an american of jewish origin ruth was born a year before my grandfather daniel f. and the phd was from the university of cologne...where daniel grew up.
he still lived there at the time when she was doing her research. now his granddaughter, a sworn virginia woolf enthusiast, is looking at the picture of ruth gruber on the back cover of her book.
how's that for a story?
