In her hands, words are fluid, radiant, humming" Evening Standard "An novel that deserves revisiting...Winterson maintains a balance of tone, a trueness of voice... It remains one of the finest things Winterson has written" Observer "Still extraordinary, still brilliant" Metro "Even at a time when so many good and interesting novels are coming out, hers stand out as performances of real originality and extraordinary promise" John Bayley
