Reader's note

Redesigned in charming watercolour, this Vintage Classics edition of Orlando includes introductions from Peter Ackroyd and Margaret Reynolds. Orlando is known as Virginia Woolf's most unusual and fantastic creation, a funny, exuberant tale that examines the very nature of sexuality. 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. This beautiful book is part of the Vintage Classics Virginia Woolf series, curated by Jeanette Winterson and Margaret Reynolds, with texts based on the original Hogarth Press editions published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf. A gorgeous gift on their own, or bundled together with Woolf classics.
