Orlando, Hardback Book

Description

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. Virginia Woolf's wildly imaginative, comic novel was inspired by the life of her lover, Vita Sackville West. This beautiful Macmillan Collector's Library edition of Orlando is published with the original illustrations and with an introduction by the academic and novelist, Professor Susan Sellers. Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles.

Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.
