Overview

The best of Jeanette Winterson's remarkable, radical and genre-expanding novels, reissued in a bold new look ahead of the publication of her new book, 12 BYTES 'Brave and ambitious' Independent In a near-future London, Sappho, Picasso and Handel each set upon the same plan - to flee the city by train. Finding themselves fellow passengers, the poet, the painter and the musician discover their fates drawn together by the curious agency of a book. As stories within stories unfold and journeys intersect, another world comes to the fore - one of painful beauty, where language has the power to heal. 'Winterson's belief in love, beauty, and most of all, language, is evangelical and redemptive...it is timely and exciting to read' Rachel Cusk, The Times
