Summer Reading: Jeanette Winterson
What better way to pass the humid days than with the tale of two lovers travelling by foot from snowy Moscow to the waterways of Venice?
In her 1987 novel, The Passion, author Jeanette Winterson shares such special moments in prose as:
They say that every snowflake is different. If that were true, how could the world go on? How could we ever get up off our knees? How could we ever recover from the wonder of it?
Heralded as a remarkable writer of our time, she has also penned the novels: Gut Symmetries, Art and Lies, Art Objects, Written on the Body, Sexing the Cherry, and Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit.
The Passion is a novel about *passion* and obsession.
Reading while taking breaks between making, Winterson shares this wisdom with her readers:
You play, you win. You play, you lose. You play. The end of every game is anti-climax. What you thought you would feel you don’t feel, what you thought was so important isn’t any more. It’s the game that’s exciting.
