Orlando | Virginia Woolf | Penguin Classics Clothbound Series
A gorgeous clothbound edition of Woolf’s iconic novel, designed by the acclaimed Coralie-Bickford Smith.
Edited by Brenda Lyons with an introduction and notes by Sandra M. Gilbert.
As his tale begins, Orlando is a passionate young noblewoman whose days are spent in rowdy revelry filled with the colourful delights of Queen Elizabeth’s court. By the close, he has transformed into a modern woman and and three centuries will have passed. Orlando is Woolf’s most extraordinary creation, and through him we see an intimate portrait of history in the making.
