A bestseller in 1930, this is a brilliant portrait of fashionable society at the height of the Edwardian Era, revealing, through the lives of Sebastian and Viola, all that was best in it - and all that was to lead to its downfall. At nineteen, Sebastian is a duke and heir to a vast country estate. A deep sense of tradition binds him to his inheritance, though he loathes the social circus he is a part of. Deception, infidelity and greed hide beneath the glittering surface of good manners. Among the guests at a lavish party are two people who will change Sebastian's life: Lady Roehampton, who will initiate him in the art of love; and Leonard Anquetil, a polar explorer who will lead Sebastian and his free-spirited sister Viola to question their destiny. Vita Sackville-West  was a  distinguished novelist who was also  Virginia Woolf''s lover and inspiration for the eponymous lead character  in Orlando.
