Description - The Gap of Time by Jeanette Winterson

'A shining delight of a novel'
New York Times

'Clever and beautiful...it soars'
Financial Times

A baby girl is abandoned, banished from London to the storm-ravaged American city of New Bohemia. Her father has been driven mad by jealousy, her mother to exile by grief.

Seventeen years later, Perdita doesn't know a lot about who she is or where she's come from - but she's about to find out.

Jeanette Winterson's cover version of The Winter's Tale vibrates with echoes of Shakespeare's original and tells a story of hearts broken and hearts healed, a story of revenge and forgiveness, a story that shows that whatever is lost shall be found.

'Emotionally wrought and profoundly intelligent... A supremely clever, compelling and emotionally affecting novel that deserves multiple readings to appreciate its many layers'
Mail on Sunday

'There are passages here so concisely beautiful they give you goosebumps'
Observer

'Pulsates with such authenticity and imaginative generosity that I defy you not to engage with it'
Independent

Author Biography - Jeanette Winterson

Jeanette Winterson OBE has written 10 novels, children's books, non-fiction and screenplays, and writes regularly for the Guardian. She was adopted by Pentecostal parents and raised in Manchester to be a missionary, which she wrote about in her first novel, Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit and twenty-seven years later in her bestselling memoir, Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? The Winter's Tale tells the story of Perdita, the abandoned child. 'All of us have talismanic texts that we have carried around and that carry us around. I have worked with The Winter's Tale in many disguises for many years,' Jeanette says of the play. The result is The Gap of Time, her cover version.
