Varm, rolig

"Laughing out loud funny" stod det i en engelsk recension och det är bara att hålla med. Jag hade den med på en resa och läste stora delar högt för mitt resesällskap (som sedan lånade den och forfarande inte lämnat tillbaka!). Ändå är innehållet allvarligt, Mrs Winterson var verkligen ett monster till adoptivmor. Det känns klichéfyllt att prata om "humor och värme", men jag kan inte beskriva med andra ord. Läs!

Recensioner i media

"Unforgettable... It's the best book I have ever read about the cost of growing up." -- Daisy Goodwin Sunday Times "A searingly felt and expressed autobiography...Funny and profoundly hopeful - a tale of survival" -- Kate Hamer Metro "This book is good, sensible, beautiful company... Try this" -- A.L. Kennedy Week "Vivid, unpredictable, and sometimes mind-rattling memoir... This book... which had been funny enough to make me laugh out loud more times than is advisable on the No 12 bus - turns into something raw and unnerving" -- Julie Myerson Observer "This is certainly the most moving book of Winterson's I have ever read... but it wriggles with humour... At one point I was crying so much I had tears in my ears. There is much here that is impressive, but what I find most unusual about it is the way it deepens one's sympathy, for everyone involved" -- Zoe Williams Guardian
