I read this in one sitting and was absolutely bewitched - as usual - by Winterson's storytelling and command of language. For such a short tale, she packs the book with detail, suspense and some of the most nasty characters ever.

“But I don't know, maybe it's just as well I never got there. I dreamed about it for so many years. I used to go to English movies just to look at the streets. I remember years ago a guy I knew told me that people going to England find exactly what they go looking for. I said I'd go looking for the England of English Literature, and he nodded and said: "It's there.”
