Seven ghosts. A crumbling apartment block on the hill. Fame. Tenderness. The statue of Peter Pan. Silk. Melancholy. The banana tree. A love story.”</i><br><i> </i><br>Virginia Woolf wrote that in order to be a writer, a woman needs a room of one's own.

Her inventory of possessions, real and imagined, pushes readers to question our cultural understanding of belonging and belongings and to consider the value of a woman's intellectual and personal life.<br> <br>Blending personal history, gender politics, philosophy, and literary theory, <i>Real Estate</i> is a brilliant, compulsively readable narrative.<br>
