In 1939, Virginia Woolf was distracted by writing projects, relocation of living and publishing quarters in London, and another impending world war. Yet she typed on behalf of the Hogarth Press a delayed rejection letter, previously unknown and unpublished, to aspiring novelist Anne Northgrave Tibble. The advice in Woolf’s letter reveals her own definition of the novel. Tibble’s forgotten voice, in her one published novel from this period, challenges, as does Woolf, war and class hierarchies, but from a different perspective. Red-brick-educated, Tibble never forgot her rural roots in North Yorkshire and consistently identified with the working classes. If Tibble is mentioned now, it is for her life writing, including scholarly biographies and a candid three-volume autobiography.
