From the Back Cover:

"Undoubtedly Virginia Woolf’s most intense and one of the most singular (novels) of our era."--Jorge Luis Borges

Begun as a "joke," Orlando is Virginia Woolf's fantastical biography of a poet who first appears as a sixteen-year-old boy at the court of Elizabeth I, and is left at the novel's end a married woman in the year 1928.
