Jeanette is a bright and rebellious orphan who is adopted into an evangelical household in the dour, industrial North of England and finds herself embroidering grim religious mottoes and shaking her little tambourine for Jesus. But as this budding missionary comes of age, and comes to terms with her unorthodox sexuality, the peculiar balance of her God-fearing household dissolves. Jeanette's insistence on listening to the truths of her own heart and mind - and on reporting them with wit and passion - makes for an unforgettable chronicle of an eccentric, moving passage into adulthood.


An explosively imaginative writer. - The London Free Press She is a master of her material, a writer [of] great talent. - Muriel Spark Many consider her to be the best living writer in this language. - Evening Standard The overwhelming impression of her work is one of remarkable self-confidence, and she evidently thrives on risk.... As good as Poe: it dares you to laugh and stares you down. - The New York Review of Books The most interesting writer I have read in twenty years. -Gore Vidal

    Geschreven bij Oranges are Not the Only Fruit

    Jeanette Winterstons insights and descriptions of a young girls life at the mercies of her slightly mad, fervently religious mother are fantastical, frightening and unbelievable in their niaivity. The main thread of the book is women. There are no strong male characters in this book except for the religious ones and even they seem to be inadequate when a real crisis emerges. The book gives us a practical insight into life in a small town in another time when homosexuality was the work of the devil and beating your wife was a part of everyday life but also guides us through the confused, innocent, fantastical imaginings and hallucinations of a young girl brilliantly educated in the ways of the Lord with no clue of life in general.
