The Hours

Alan Cheuse has a review of a new novel by Michael Cunningham called "The Hours." It weaves three storylines together, focusing on a book editor in New York, a housewife in California, and the suicide of Virginia Woolf. He says it's a masterful and delicate book with deep themes and elegant writing. (NOTE: "The Hours" by Michael Cunningham is published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux.)
