Monday or Tuesday


Monday or Tuesday is a 1921 short story collection by Virginia Woolf published by The Hogarth Press. 1000 copies were printed with four full-page woodcuts by Vanessa Bell.[1] Leonard Woolf called it one of the worst printed books ever published because of the typographical mistakes in it.[2] Most mistakes were corrected for the US edition published by Harcourt Brace.[3] It contained eight stories:

  • "A Haunted House"
  • "A Society"
  • "Monday or Tuesday"
  • "An Unwritten Novel" – previously appeared in the London Mercury in 1920
  • "The String Quartet"
  • "Blue & Green"
  • "Kew Gardens" previously published separately
  • "The Mark on the Wall" – previously appeared in Two Stories (1917)

Six of the stories were later published by Leonard Woolf in the posthumous collection A Haunted House, those excluded were "A Society" and "Blue & Green".[3]
