Who's Unafraid Of Virginia Woolf?

In reviewing Julia Brigg's new biography of Virginia Woolf, Charles Matthews says:

"As Briggs puts it, Woolf strove for fiction that would `hold together the multiplicity, inconsistency and variety that characterize our experience of living' and that would provide `pictures rather than explanations, questions rather than answers, the elusiveness of the short story rather than the solidity of the novel.' "

Tall order, that.
