Written On The Body

Jeanette Winterson

Written on the body is a secret code only visible in certain lights: the accumulation of a lifetime gather there.

In places the palimpsest is so heavily worked that the letters feel like braille.

I like to keep my body rolled away from prying eyes, never unfold too much, tell the whole story.

I didn't know that Louise would have reading hands. She has translated me into her own book.
