Ella Baron’s full-page cartoon in the TLS on 6/12/19 was headed: “Distorted realities have always been my cup of tea” – Virginia Woolf.


Never heard of that one, so I turned to Kobo – and couldn’t find it.  Just now, I have checked the CD-ROM and have again drawn a blank.

Eliot" (Lexington Books, imprint of Rowman & Littlefield: 2017), p. 47: NO REF. – naughty, naughty.  However, it seems to have been floating around the Internet since at least 2015. There’s even a ref. to “Selected Diaries” as a source.
