"The World and Other Places" is a collection of short stories, each entirely independent, yet tenuously linked. I found it a rough beginning - the first few essays did not draw me in as much as most of Winterson's work does, but by the end I was thoroughly engrossed. Several of the stories really stood out to me beyond all the rest - Atlantic Crossing, Disappearance I, Turn of the World and The World and Other Places were some of my favorites. I don't think this is one of Winterson's strongest novels, but it is still eminently readable and enjoyable if you have the time to really savor it.
