'To Reveal My Bias at the Start'

William H. Pritchard in his review of The Life of Ivy Compton-Burnett by Hilary Spurling (The Hudson Review, Summer 1985):

“To reveal my bias at the start, I would quite willingly forsake any future reading of Virginia Woolf’s The Waves or The Years in favor of any single novel by Compton-Burnett.”

Might as well add the rest of Woolf’s stillborn oeuvre.

Hear hear and hear again – and Spurling's is a quite brilliant biography.
