Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Thursday, August 08, 2019
I got this ex-library softcover at a local Goodwill thrift shop. I'd read this quirky novel years ago and found it... interesting, but not enough so for me to fall in love with it. Its premise: the title character has somehow acquired eternal youth (or at least very slow aging), plus the ability to spontaneously change sex; the story follows him/her through a number of historical periods and personal adventures. The 1992 film featured Tilda Swinton as Orlando - an inspired choice! - and some other fun-with-casting bits, including Quentin Crisp as Queen Elizabeth I.

[There's a TV Tropes page on the book, with mention of the stage and screen adaptations.]
