Summary:
'Jacob's room' marks the bold affirmation of her Virginia Woolf's voice and search for a new form to express her view that the human soul orientates itself afresh every now & then. It is doing so now. No one can see it whole therefore. Jacob's life is presented in subtle, delicate and tantalising glimpses. The novel gaps and silences are as replete with meaning as the wicker armchair creaking in the empty room.
