CHOSEN BY HELEN DUNMORE AS HER ORANGE INHERITANCE - Vintage Classics has partnered with The Orange Prize for Fiction to ask six recipients of the Prize which book they would pass onto the next generation. THIS ORANGE INHERITANCE EDITION OF To the Lighthouse IS PUBLISHED IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE ORANGE PRIZE FOR FICTION Books shape our lives and transform the way we see ourselves and each other. The best books are timeless and continue to be relevant generation after generation. Vintage Classics asked the winners of The Orange Prize for Fiction which books they would pass onto the next generation and why. Helen Dunmore chose To the Lighthouse. The serene and maternal Mrs Ramsay, the tragic yet absurd Mr Ramsay, together with their children and assorted guests, are holidaying on the Isle of Skye. From the seemingly trivial postponement of a visit to a nearby lighthouse Virginia Woolf constructs a remarkable and moving examination of the complex tensions and allegiances of family life, and the conflict between male and female principles. 'One of the finest novels in the English language' Helen Dunmore.
