No flaws or blemishes; but minimal retail handling. --- In the introduction to her book, Women's Friendships in Literature, Janet Todd says that the main reason for writing the book is to prove Virginia Woolf wrong. In A Room of One's Own, Woolf claims that she has never encountered a description of real female friendship in the course of her reading. Todd totally disagrees with her. She feels that Eighteenth century literature in particular is "rich in presentations of female friendship"
