Sexing the Cherry
Author: Jeanette Winterson
In the reign of Charles II, Jordan and his mother, the Dog-Woman, live on the banks of the stinking Thames, where they take in sights ranging from the first pineapple in London to Royalist heads on pikes. As a young man, Jordan leaves to travel the world, seeking wonder and knowledge, and learns that every journey conceals another within it. ...  more » celebrates the power of the imagination as it playfully juggles with our perceptions of history and reality; love and sex; lies and truths; and the twelve dancing princesses who lived happily ever after, but not with their husbands.

A wonderful, delightful story(ies). It reminded me of Anais Nin's Collages. Winterson takes you on a wonderful journey with her lively poem-like prose, she has produced a book I'll keep and re-read over and over and still learn something new each time
