I loved this book- humor, tragedy, and above all, as I found with other Winterson books, the REAL quality of the characters shine through effortlessly. There are parts of this book that I want to share with everyone I know.
I loved this book. Wasn't too sure about it because of all the religious stuff, but it was great non-the-less. Highly recommended.
Winterson's first, and I sometimes think, her best. Fictionalised account of her childhood, adopted by a woman belonging to one of those strange religious brethen sects, realising she is a lesbian etc. Brilliantly written, very funny at times
You know what? No, I'm not going to bother saying much about this. It's Jeanette Winterson. The people who like her will already want to read this; the people who don't like her won't be swayed by this fictionalized memoir (or memoir-ized fiction). It's great. That's really all you need to know.
