Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The most beguilingly seductive novel to date from the author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry. Winterson chronicles the consuming affair between the narrator, who is given neither name nor gender, and the beloved, a complex and confused married woman. "At once a love story and a philosophical meditation."--New York Times Book Review.

Review:
"'Written on the Body' pitches reason against feeling in a story of love and the loss of love between a writer and a beautiful married woman dying of cancer. Notorious in England for outing Winterson's affair with her agent Pat Kavanagh, wife of novelist Julian Barnes, this novel teases the reader with the narrator's undeclared gender and offers a poetic if mannered entwining of languages of biology and love."

Charlotte Innes, Lambda Book Report, July/August 1995

Review:
"Her writing is like a wall of dry stones: each word a specially chosen rock, unique in color and shape...The effect is stimulating, punchy, and...beguiling... Winterson has a lot of talent."

Gabriele Annan, New York Review of Books, 03/04/1993
