Sexing the Cherry


Jeanette Winterson,  Sexing the Cherry. London: Bloomsbury, 1989.

First edition. 167 pp. Hardcover in unclipped dust jacket designed by Jeffrey Fisher. In very good condition. Signed by author “To Jane, With Thanks” on title page.

Jeanette Winterson is a master of queering genre, not just characters, and in this case recombines the past, present, and the future: the history of lives lived in 17th-century England, memories from her own life, and a kind of future musing on what women might accomplish both in spite of the constraints of misogyny, and/or when such constraints are lifted.
