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

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY HELEN DUNMORE

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, 36-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.

Reviews

Orlando is the wittiest little book, a pleasure: it makes me laugh every time I read it

Undoubtedly Virginia Woolf's most intense and one of the most singular [novels] of our era
