About the Author

Virginia Woolf was born in London in 1882. Shortly after her father's death, she moved to Bloomsbury where, with her sister, the painter Vanessa Bell, Virginia met writers and artists such as Lytton Strachey and Roger Fry, forming what later became known as the Bloomsbury Group. In 1912 she married Leonard Woolf and together, in 1917, they founded their own printing press. Virginia Woolf met Vita Sackville-West in 1922, for whom the brilliant fantasy of Orlando was written. She died in 1941 after drowning herself in the River Ouse.


Orlando is the book to put under your pillow and rest upon -- TILDA SWINTON
Wonderfully bold and inventive * * Observer * *
Sexy, provocative and tantalising -- JEANETTE WINTERSON
A book that refuses all constraints: historical, fantastical, metaphysical, sociological . . . Orlando is a joyful and passionate declaration of love as life, regardless of gender . . . Reading Orlando is a pleasure. It is like sitting up all night by the fire with an old friend and a bottle of wine, where the talk is easy, whether of great things or small, and when, as morning comes, you feel better * * New Statesman * *
