About the Author
A novelist whose honours include England's Whitbread Prize, and the American Academy's E. M. Forster Award, as well as the Prix d'argent at the Cannes Film Festival, JEANETTE WINTERSON burst onto the literary scene as a very young woman in 1985 with Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit. Her subsequent novels, including Sexing the Cherry, The Passion, Written on the Body, and The PowerBook, have also gone on to receive great international acclaim. She lives in London and the Cotswolds.
"Brilliant ... [Gut Symmetries] scintillates with a language live enough to carry a wild musing on the largest issues of our existence." - The Globe and Mail "Beyond comparison.... Few writers can contend with Jeanette Winterson.... She writes like a demon drunk with love, and if there's a sentence in Gut Symmetries that doesn't startle readers with its bravery and wit, then they're not reading hard enough." - The Chronicle-Journal "Fascinating, provocative.... Jeanette Winterson proves she is as literarily nimble as she is intellectually stimulating." - The Montreal Gazette "Riveting ... [Winterson] expresses the range of the human soul with startling ingenuity." - The Vancouver Sun
