Description - Sexing The Cherry by Jeanette Winterson

'Entrancing...fabulous... Its language retains the clear music of poetry' Sunday Telegraph

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'
Financial Times
