Descrição

These interlocking essays uncover art as an active force in the world – neither elitist or remote, present to those who want it, affecting even those who don’t. Winterson’s own passionate vision of art is presented here, provocatively and personally, in pieces on Modernism, autobiography, style, painting, the future of fiction, in two essays on Virginia Woolf, and more intimately in pieces where she describes her relationship to her work and the books that she loves.


‘Courageous… Her writing is spirited and insouciant in its fusing of love of words and sensual desire’ Scotsman

‘Winterson is in fine form in these essays about art’ Observer

‘Flashes of sly wit have an epigrammatic power… On Joyce, Woolf, Conrad, Dickens and the development of English literature she is acute and always interesting…covetable, infuriating, stimulating’ Independent
