Moving from one century into the next, oblivious to time and dimension, Orlando consorts with writers and monarchs, actors and gypsies, dropping one fashion and folly for another, and waking up at the end of a deep sleep, not only in a different age, but in a different gender. When it was published in 1928, Orlando's playful experimentation with the idea of androgyny was considered unique and vaguely scandalous. Today, the novel has come resoundingly of age, ringing with a new and fresh relevancy for contemporary readers.

Author Bio: Virginia Woolf

Virginia Woolf (1882–1941) was born in London, the daughter of Sir Leslie Stephen, first editor of the Dictionary of National Biography. From 1915 when she published her first novel, The Voyage Out, Woolf maintained an astonishing output of fiction, literary criticism, essays, and biography. In 1912 she married Leonard Woolf, and in 1917 they founded the Hogarth Press. Woolf suffered a series of mental breakdowns throughout her life, and on March 28, 1941, she committed suicide.
