Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
Winner of the Whitbread Prize for best first fiction, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a coming-out novel from Winterson, the acclaimed author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry. The narrator, Jeanette, cuts her teeth on the knowledge that she is one of God’s elect, but as this budding evangelical comes of age, and comes to terms with her preference for her own sex, the peculiar balance of her God-fearing household crumbles.

This is an unusual yet moving work. It is a quick read, witty and personal. The ending felt abrupt and unresolved to me. I wanted an epilogue--someway of knowing what happened to Jeanette in her life. A good book, but not a favorite. Read full review
