Orlando is one of the most unforgettable creations of twentieth-century literature. He emerges as a young man at the court of Queen Elizabeth I and progresses, with breathtaking ease, through three centuries until, by now a woman, she arrives in the bustle and diversion of the 1920's. For Virginia Woolf, a leading figure of the Bloomsbury Group, Orlando was more than a fantastic flight of imagination. It was a roman á clef, a love letter for her lover, the charismatic, eccentric bisexual, Vita Sackville West. Orlando's journey, from wondrous youth barbed by love, to feted writer, settled in her femininity, is a wild and curiously relevant fable for our times. Download and start listening now!

    " Didn't really get to grips with this book but I was young when I read it so should probably try again. "

    " I don't remember when I first read this book, but once is definitely not enough. A lyrical and comedic rhapsody that is not your usual Woolf! "

    " Everything, in fact, was something else. "

    " Very interesting commentary in the form of fiction from Woolf on gender and society throughout different ages in England. I saw the movie once but I didn't pay attention much because I knew I wanted to read it eventually. Must re-watch soon. "
