It’s like this, he said: autobiographical fiction meets stream of consciousness at a beach house in Scotland. Oh yes, and there is this lighthouse. “The lighthouse is dangerous [as a literary device],” he told me. “If [Woolf] had just pressed one gram of excess weight on that image it would have been so corny.

Her report appears as a post on After The Jump, The Chronicle's news blog.
