Orlando in the Cities
Orlando, beautiful but lazy shepherd boy on Crete, is tasked by the gods to find out which city is the most perfect.
His journey takes him to Alexandria, where he studies with Euclid, Florence, where he sits for a portrait by da Vinci, London, where he falls in love with Russian princess, Paris where—now mysteriously turned woman—she joins the march on Versailles, Vienna, where she attracts the curiosity of a Dr Freud and New York, where, now man again, but experimenting with drag, he encounters the ups and downs of Warhol's Factory circle, before finally, without gender or agenda Orlando becomes simply Orlando.
A playful literary odyssey through 2500 years of Western civilisation.
