• "Winterson is a rangy pirate, a world-swashbuckler, a plunderer of stories, literatures and hearts"

    Ali Smith, Scotsman
  • "Gorgeously written, shockingly moving...a wonderful, unforgettable read. Buy it for someone you really love"

    Simon Schama, Mail on Sunday
  • "Winterson writes with evangelical assurance, vaulting ambition, total control...witty, original, and good at what she does"

  • "Mischievous and intelligent, determined to provoke thoughts about love's reason, and its risk"

    The Times
  • "Brilliant, evocative writing... Winterson never seems to put a foot wrong... It is funny, clever, entertaining and wholly delightful"
