Orlando, Hardback Book

Orlando Hardback

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library series

Hardback

Description

One of BBC's 100 Novels That Shaped Our World. Virginia Woolf's wildly imaginative, comic novel was inspired by the life of her lover, Vita Sackville West.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers.

These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover.

This edition features original illustrations and with an introduction by the academic and novelist, Professor Susan Sellers. Orlando is a young Elizabethan nobleman whose wealth and status afford him an extravagant lifestyle.

Appointed ambassador in Constantinople, he wakes one morning to find he is a woman.

Unperturbed by such a dramatic transformation, and losing none of his flamboyance and ambition, the newly female Orlando charges through life and English history so that by the end of this extraordinary biography she is a modern, 1920s woman.
