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!

"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 "In the 26 years since the publication of her highly acclaimed first novel, Oranges are Not the Only Fruit, Jeanette Winterson has proved herself a writer of startling invention, originality and style. Her combination of the magical and the earthy, the rapturous and the matter-of-fact, is unique. It is a strange and felicitous gift, as if the best of Gabriel Garcia Marquez was combined with the best of Alan Bennett... This remarkable account is, among other things, a powerful argument for reading... This memoir is brave and beautiful, a testament to the forces of intelligence, heart and imagination. It is a marvellous book and generous one" Spectator "Both inspiring and appalling, its cruellest details only made digestible by the restrained elegance of Winterson's prose" Independent on Sunday "An essential new book... she is a natural memoirist. The first half is a mature retelling of her masterwork, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit... The second half is a wry, urgent account of her hunt for her birth mother... Pressed on by the need for self discovery, the prose doesn't miss a beat... it feels risky and alive" Evening Standard
