The Hours - Michael Cunningham

In 1925 Virginia Woolf published "Mrs Dalloway" and broke new literary ground by writing about a single day in the life of a middle-aged woman.  Cunningham piggybacks on the style of writing and story line to provide a parallel story using Woolf as a character in his tale of three women's lives intertwined for a day. Having read Mrs. Dalloway this summer, I relished the intricate way the author used Woolf's own life story with her own style to bring his characters to the end of their day.

Now to watch the movie!
