Comedian Sara Pascoe chooses the author of ‘Mrs Dalloway’, Virginia Woolf. With Matthew Parris. From 2016.

Sara Pascoe champions the life of Virginia Woolf, author of 'Mrs Dalloway' and 'A Room of One's Own', describing her as a sensible feminist.

Sara explains why she thinks if she were alive today, Woolf would be a comedian, and how through her diaries and letters she's discovered the witty, manic and egotistical Virginia. Presenter Matthew Parris confesses to struggling with her work. Alexandra Harris is the expert.
