Synopsis

Sexing the Cherry celebrates the power of the imagination as it playfully juggles with our perception of history and reality.



It is a story about love and sex; lies and truths; and twelve dancing princesses who lived happily ever after, but not with their husbands.



With a new introduction by the author



'A book of innocence and bawdiness, fury and joy...needs to be read and re-read'

The Times



'Read it and marvel. Jeanette Winterson's voice is startlingly original, and her imaginative feats are utterly dazzling'

Cosmopolitan



'Her stories and characters levitate off the page into dancing life... A bold, bizarre and timely book'

Independent



'Simple prose shows the subtlest of minds behind it, swift, confident and dazzling'

Jeanette Winterson OBE was born in Manchester. Adopted by Pentecostal parents she was raised to be a missionary. This did and didn't work out. Discovering early the power of books she left home at 16 to live in a Mini and get on with her education. After graduating from Oxford University she worked for a while in the theatre and published her first novel at 25. Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit is based on her own upbringing but using herself as a fictional character. She scripted the novel into a BAFTA-winning BBC drama. 27 years later she re-visited that material in the bestselling memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? She has written 10 novels for adults, as well as children's books, non-fiction and screenplays. She writes regularly for the Guardian. She lives in the Cotswolds in a wood and in Spitalfields, London. She believes that art is for everyone and it is her mission to prove it.
