Orlando A Biography

In 1928, way before everyone else was talking about gender-bending and way, way before the terrific movie with Tilda
Swinton, Virginia Woolf wrote her comic masterpiece, a fantastic, fanciful love letter disguised as a biography, to Vita
Sackville-West. Orlando enters the book as an Elizabethan nobleman and leaves the book three centuries and one change of
gender later as a liberated woman of the 1920s. Along the way this most rambunctious of Woolf's characters engages in
sword fights, trades barbs with 18th century wits, has a baby, and drives a car. This is a deliriously written,
breathless-making book and a classic both of lesbian literature and the Western canon.
