Val McDermid on Orlando

Val chooses Virginia Woolf's novel for Queer Icons, BBC Radio's celebration of LGBTQ culture.

Written in 1928, Orlando is about a poet who changes sex from man to woman and lives for centuries, meeting the key figures of English literary history.

Val McDermid is a best-selling Scottish crime writer. This Queer Icons interview was broadcast on Open Book.
