Recommended for: fans of postmodern and nonlinear lit
Read in June, 2007

Winterson's an acquired taste, but I love her writing. She does a fantastic job balancing the ambiguity and abstractness of myth with really concrete personifications, particularly of Hera and Heracles. It's unexpected and yet fits, vulgar and ethereal, and it really works. Fabulous ending.
