by Virginia Woolf
The fictional portrait of Woolf’s close friend and lover Vita Sackville-West, the hero Orlando is a young nobleman in Elizabethan England, a dreamy and romantic youth who wakes up one day to find himself transformed, astonishingly, into a woman. Over the span of three centuries, Orlando will fall in love many times and rub shoulders with the great artists and writers—and observe how differently history treats men than women.
Bold and tender, Orlando is a truly multi-faceted work that has been hailed as a satire of biography, a queer classic, and a loving portrait of an irrepressible spirit.
