Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An introduction by Tilda Swinton rounds out this beautifully produced edition of Virginia Woolf's glittering and exuberant fantasy
 
Written for and dedicated to Vita Sackville-West, Orlando is sometimes described as the "longest and most charming love letter in literature." During the Elizabethan era, the young courtier Orlando becomes a lover to the aging Queen and embarks on an intense affair with the beautiful Russian Princess Sasha. Yet while Orlando can fulfill most of his desires, he never quite seems to fit in. Then one night, Orlando falls into a deep sleep and awakes transformed, emerging as a woman in eighteenth-century London. Orlando must now inhabit a very different life, dealing with matters of dress, sex and marriage. But will she arrive in the twentieth century as an individual who has, at last, forged a place in society for herself?

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) is one of the foremost innovative writers of the 20th century, and is most famous for her novels Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse. She met Vita Sackville-West in 1922, for whom the brilliant fantasy of Orlando was written. Tilda Swinton is an Academy Award-winning actress who played the title role in Sally Potter's 1992 feature film Orlando. Her many other films include The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; The Deep EndI Am Love; and Michael Clayton.
