Olivia Laing's 6 favorite books

Olivia Laing is an acclaimed British editor and critic. Her new novel is Crudo. One of her six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Orlando by Virginia Woolf

This October, it will be 90 years since Orlando was first published. Woolf's most playful book remains strikingly relevant today, not least for its sustained and elegant argument about the fluidity of gender.

Orlando is among Gregory Woods's top ten landmarks in gay and lesbian literature, Jonathan Gibbs's top ten fictitious biographies, and Sam Mills's top ten fictional sex changes.
