Oranges are not the only fruit by Jeanette Winterson( Book )

143 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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.

Lighthousekeeping by Jeanette Winterson( Book )

49 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Orphaned and anchorless, Silver is taken in by blind Mr. Pew, the mysterious and miraculously old keeper of the Cape Wrath lighthouse. Pew tells Silver ancient tales of longing and rootlessness, of journeys that move through place and time, of passion and betrayal. His stories center on Babel Dark, a local nineteenth-century clergyman who lived two lives: a public one mired in darkness and a private one bathed in a beacon of light. Pew's stories are, for Silver, a map through her own particular darkness, into her own story and, finally, into love. With Lighthousekeeping, Winterson begins a new cycle and a return to the lyrical intimacy of her earliest work. One of the most original and extraordinary writers of her generation, Winterson has created a modern fable about the transformative power of storytelling."--Publisher's description

Aboard the QE2 and under the stars, three lives converge. Two physicists - Jove, a married man, and Alice, a single woman - meet and commence an affair, only for Alice to fall in love with Jove's wife, Stella, a poet. Winterson captures all three sides of this triangle of desire - and the rich history that has brought them together - with her prodigious passion and intellect. Encompassing ideas that reach from the Greeks to the Grand Unified Theories (GUTs) of modern physics, Winterson incorporates the entire universe from Liverpool to New York, from quarks to cosmos - in a novel of sex and the spirit, the real and the fantastic, male and female, science and religion, and love in all its frailty and excess

Art objects : essays on ecstasy and effrontery by Jeanette Winterson( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and Polish and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An act of courage and effrontery, a uniquely human endeavor that defies time and differences, art offers new realities, emotions and worlds to anyone prepared to meet the demands it places on us. Art objects to the lie that life is small, fragmented and mean. Art objects to the myth of inevitable decay. Winterson's eloquent vision of objecting, transforming, exuberant art is presented in pieces on painting, autobiography, style and the future of fiction. She also declares her admiration for Modernism and examines the writing of Virginia Woolf, T.S. Eliot and Gertrude Stein. More personally, she confronts the current fascination with the writer's life or sexuality instead of the work itself, and describes her relationship to her own fiction
