really liked it
bookshelves: 2010, fiction
Read in April, 2010

Ok, so I know I ought to have read this back in the 80s when everyone else read it but you know how it goes, one thing leads to another and a book flies by.

Anyway, I heard Winterson speaking on Radio 4 last week and thought how wise and intelligent she sounded so ordered the book from the library.

And what a good book it is! Though I did end up skimming the mythic symbolist interludes after a while.

Must see the TV version.
