Product Description

FRANKISSSTEIN: Jeanette Winterson’s most recent novel, Frankissstein, saw her celebrated as one of our great writer-thinkers, always testing the boundaries of culture and the written word. We will be reissuing her backlist to coincide with the paperback publication of FrankisssteinNEW SERIES: These are the best of Jeanette Winterson’s backlist – and we will be creating bold, iconoclastic look that speaks to a new generation of readers

Jeanette Winterson OBE was born in Manchester. Adopted by Pentecostal parents she was raised to be a missionary. This did and didn’t work out.

Discovering early the power of books she left home at 16 to live in a Mini and get on with her education. After graduating from Oxford University she worked for a while in the theatre and published her first novel at 25. Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit is based on her own upbringing but using herself as a fictional character. She scripted the novel into a BAFTA-winning BBC drama. 27 years later she re-visited that material in the bestselling memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? She has written 10 novels for adults, as well as children’s books, non-fiction and screenplays. She writes regularly for the Guardian. She lives in the Cotswolds in a wood and in Spitalfields, London.

She believes that art is for everyone and it is her mission to prove it.

On the banks of the Thames a baby is found floating. Rescued by the Dog-Woman, a giant strong enough to fling an elephant into the air, their lives together will take them on a dizzying journey through space and time.

As past and present collapse and centuries overlap, love, sex, truth, lies and twelve dancing princesses take centre stage.
