Descrizione articolo


Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, Jeanette Winterson's delectable first novel, announced the arrival of 'a fresh voice with a mind behind it,' as Muriel Spark has written. 'She is a master of her material, a writer in whom great talent deeply abides'--and her reputation and accomplishment have grown with each of her five subsequent novels.

Now, with her first collection--seventeen stories that span her entire career--Jeanette Winterson reveals all the facets of her extraordinary imagination. Whether transporting us to bizarre new geog-raphies--a world where sleep is illegal, an island of diamonds where the rich wear jewelry made of coal--or revealing so perfectly, so exactly, the joy and pain of owning a brand-new dog, she proves herself a master of the short form.

For her readers, a celebration--and for everyone else, a wonderful introduction to this highly original and consistently daring writer, who has become 'one of our most brilliant, visionary storytellers' (San Francisco Chronicle)


"One of our most brilliant, visionary storytellers." —San Francisco Chronicle

"Unforgettable...heartbreaking...hilarious.... A work to be savoured, to be read repeatedly, each reading revealing new depths, new complexities, and new insights." —National Post

"Heart-breakingly beautiful...awash in sensuous, colourful imagery." —The Edmonton Journal

"An awesome panorama [by] an original and thrilling writer...Compelling and wild." —The Independent

"A display of double-edged talent—[Her] first collection of short stories reaffirms her position as one of the great originals of her generation." —New Brunswick Telegraph-Journal
