Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

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)

"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
