In 1928, Woolf presented Sackville-West with Orlando , a fantastical biography in which the eponymous hero's life spans three centuries and both sexes. Nigel Nicolson , Vita Sackville-West's son, wrote, "The effect of Vita on Virginia is all contained in Orlando , the longest and most charming love letter in literature, in which she explores Vita, weaves her in and out of the centuries, tosses her from one sex to the other, plays with her, dresses her in furs, lace and emeralds, teases her, flirts with her, drops a veil of mist around her."  After their affair ended, the two women remained friends until Woolf's death in 1941. Virginia Woolf also remained close to her surviving siblings, Adrian and Vanessa; Thoby had died of typhoid fever at the age of 26.
