About this book
Jeanette Winterson's first collection of short stories was well received when originally published in Cape hardback. "The quality of her writing has remained constant: precise, fluent, perfectly judged. This collection is another refinement of that art, studded with metaphors and unexpected asides" "Independent On Sunday".
A collection of short stories that reveals various facets of an extraordinary imagination. In prose that is full of imagery and word-play, it creates physical and psychological worlds that are at once familiar and yet shockingly strange.
