Reviews

  • "Part love story, part philosophical treatise, part anatomical guide, Written on the Body defies categorisation, dispensing with clichés and stereotypes to forge, from the raw physicality of the body itself, a new language for love."

    Jamei Qautro, Guardian
  • "Winterson's novels are about exploding our complacent notions of the real, breaking down received ideas of gender, time and space... John Donne wrote, "Love...makes one little room, as everywhere." Winterson's novel arrives at a similar affirmation"

    Time Out
  • "An ambitious work, at once a love story and a philosophical meditation on the body...the result is a work that is consistently revelatory about the phenomenon of love"

    New York Times Book Review
  • "This book is a deep sensual plunge, a worship of the body, inside and out"

    Guardian
