About the Book
This book is that story’s silent twin. It is full of hurt and humour and a fierce love of life. It is about the pursuit of happiness, about lessons in love, the search for a mother and a journey into madness and out again. It is generous, honest and true.
What we think
“Winterson is a truly great writer and her searingly honest account of growing up, how we learn to deal with our own lives, with who we are and who we want to be is as dark as it is joyful. There are no words that can do this book justice. It simply has to be read.”
