Evidence

"I came in just now, having been to Wertheim"s to buy a pair of gloves for 4 marks, and meant to go on with my story of the bank clerk who loses his memory, but having stopped at the book shop on the way and bought Orlando in Tauchnitz I began to read, and so lost myself that the evening is already nearly gone. Do you know, I never read Orlando without tears pricking my eyes?"

I have classified Orlando as biography/fiction as it was based on the life of Vita Sackville-West. However it covers a long period of time and the main character is a man.
