Blurb: “Spanning three and a half
centuries of boisterous, exuberant
adventure in England, in Constantinople,
with aristocrats and gypsies—first as a
man, then as a woman– Orlando’s story is
a wild farce, a humorous history, a gay
romance. . . . Rebecca West called
Orlando �a poetic masterpiece of the first
rank’ and Elizabeth Bowen found it �one
of the most high-spirited books I know . . .
A book for those who are young in a big
HBJ 1973

“In her exuberant, most fanciful
novel, Virginia Woolf has created a
character liberated from the
restraints of time and sex... A
brilliantly imagined pageant of
English history, society, and
literature, Orlando is also a
feminist reappraisal of the nature of
the sexes. ”

Read by Laura Paton
“In 1927, when Virginia Woolf
was planning Orlando, she
described her proposed book as
an �escapade’ and �a love letter.’
It was an �escapade’ because she
needed a �writer’s holiday’: she
wanted to write a book about
history, biography, the meaning
of time and sexual ambiguity.”
(Liner notes, Heather Godwin)
