Orlando – Virginia Woolf.

Woolf’s fake biography of an Elizabethan nobleman, who lives on agelessly across centuries, undergoing a mysterious change of sex, has always delighted readers with its witty and sparkling writing. Over the decades, however, it has come to be seen, not just as a clever piece of historical reconstruction, but a prescient and inspiring vision of humanity freed from the stereotyping of gender.
