Having read the rest of Winterson's in-print books this year, this volume of short stories proved a lovely, fitting end. Some were reflections found in her other works (Sexing the Cherry, Written on the Body), some were completely new to me. Just beautiful.

Jeanette Winterson and I have become friends. What a little gem of short stories. I picked this book up for $1.00 at a charity sponsored book sale and now I feel guilty for not paying more for it. Jeanette has had me laughing, hoping and remembering since page 1. Her whimsy and honest insight has kept me turning pages - and occassionally re-reading stories. Thanks Jeanette.

I find Winterson's writing and style utterly electrifying. These various stories, some of which delve into the theme of what one risks reveals what one values, explore a variety of worlds and lives. One or two of the stories didn't resonate with me as much as the others, but overall this collection is marvelous. From the lush "The Poetics of Sex" to the dazzling "Orion" to the delightful "Turn of the World", these stories border on fables, and reminded me of works by Emma Donoghue, Angela Carter, and Ben Marcus, among others. Such an invigorating assortment that is certain to gratify daring readers.
My favorite line is from the story "Orion": "She realised that the only war worth fighting was the one that raged within; the rest were all diversions."
