Flush, Virginia Woolf’s ‘biography’ of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s cocker spaniel, is the most charming, fascinating and original book imaginable, no wonder it was a huge bestseller when published (rather to Virginia’s dismay). Our edition also has a brilliant preface by Sally Beauman showing that the repression of Elizabeth Barrett by her father was an act of grotesque patriarchal dominance disguised as kindness. This is Elizabeth’s 1843 drawing of her beloved companion.
