One of the greatest love stories of all time, seen through the eyes of a dog. Not any old dog: Flush was the subject of some delightful verses by Elizabeth Barrett, the invalid poet who amazed the world by eloping with Robert Browning. Virginia Woolf’s ‘biography’ of one of history’s greatest cocker spaniels is a comic masterpiece about much more than a dog.
