Playful and accessible Woolf,
This review is from: Orlando: A Biography (Pocket Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
This is probably Virginia's Woolf's most accessible novel. It tells the story of Orlando, who starts life as a charming boy in Elizabethan England and then lives through the remaining centuries till Woolf's own time (early 20th century England) after changing sex halfway through the novel. It sounds weird but it works fabulously.
Witty, lyrical and playful, with Woolf's distinctive prose this is definitely the place to start if you've never read one of the best novelists/writers of the 20th century.
