Description

Virginia Woolf’s most unusual and fantastic creation, a funny, exuberant tale that examines the very nature of sexuality.

**One of the BBC’s 100 Novels That Shaped Our World**

As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate young nobleman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry, filled with the colourful delights of Queen Elizabeth’s court. By the close, he will have transformed into a modern, thirty-six-year-old woman and three centuries will have passed. Orlando will not only witness the making of history from its edge, but will find that his unique position as a woman who knows what it is to be a man will give him insight into matters of the heart.
