In alternating chapters, three stories unfold: 'Mrs. Woolf,' about Virginia's own struggle to find an opening for Mrs. Dalloway in 1923; 'Mrs. Brown', about one Laura Brown's efforts to escape, somehow, an airless marriage in California in 1949 while, coincidentally, reading Mrs. Dalloway; and 'Mrs. Dalloway', which is set in 1990s Greenwich Village and concerns Clarissa Vaughan's preparations for a party for her gay - and dying - friend, Richard, who has nicknamed her Mrs. Dalloway.
