Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Innovative in style, its humour by turns punchy and tender, Jeanette Wintersons first novel, Oranges are Not the Only Fruit is a few days ride into the bizarre outposts of religious excess and human obsession. Its a love story, too. Wintersons adaptation of the novel was an internationally acclaimed television drama awarded a BAFTA for best drama and an RTS award in the same year; the Prix Italia; FIPA DArgent at Cannes for best script; The Golden Gate in San Francisco and an ACE Award at the Los Angeles television festival.

Synopsis:

Winner of the Whitbread Prize for best first fiction, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a coming-out novel from Winterson, the acclaimed author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry. The narrator, Jeanette, cuts her teeth on the knowledge that she is one of Gods elect, but as this budding evangelical comes of age, and comes to terms with her preference for her own sex, the peculiar balance of her God-fearing household crumbles.

Synopsis:

JEANETTE WINTERSON OBE is the author of ten novels, including Oranges are not the Only Fruit, The Passion and Sexing the Cherry; a book of short stories, The World and Other Places; a collection of essays, Art Objects as well as many other works, including children's books, screenplays and journalism. Her writing has won the Whitbread Award for Best First Novel, the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize, the E. M. Forster Award and the Prix d'argent at Cannes Film Festival.

Synopsis:

Vintage now publish all Jeanette Winterson's novels in paperback, and have taken the opportunity to repackage all of them with attractive new jackets. "Oranges" was her first novel, her other titles are listed below.
