Description

Brought to you by Penguin.   

This Penguin Classic is performed by Audie Award winner, Pippa Nixon, known for her roles in Unforgotten, John Carter and Mother Father Son. This definitive recording of Virginia Woolf's Orlando includes an introduction by Sandra M. Gilbert.   

Written for Virginia Woolf's intimate friend, the charismatic writer Vita Sackville-West, Orlando, is a playful mock biography of a chameleonic historical figure, immortal and ageless, who changes sex and identity on a whim. 

First masculine, then feminine, Orlando begins life as a young sixteenth-century nobleman, then gallops through three centuries to end up as a woman writer in Virginia Woolf's own time. A wry commentary on gender roles and modes of history, Orlando is also, in Woolf's own words, a light-hearted 'writer's holiday' which delights in ambiguity and capriciousness.

Commentaires

"Woolf's stream-of-consciousness asides are like cheeky, intimate confidences in your ear ... it's a far more entertaining companion to travel to work with than Twitter. What a treat, and a revelation." (i News)

perfect voice, awesome book!

I love both the book and this audio version so much that I listen to it over and over again. Nixon's voice is the perfect match for Woolf's style in this work. with every read one can discover new aspects. Nixon's voice reveals new perspectives.

challenging

presents interesting perspective of androgyny but is challenging to modern readers due to lengthy narrative
