Adopted into an evangelical household in the dour industrial Midlands - Jeanette cuts her teeth on the knowledge that she is one on God's elect.

This makes for an unforgettable chronicle of an eccentric, moving rite of passage into adulthood. Bookseller Inventory # 6999

About the Author:

JEANETTE WINTERSON OBE was born in Manchester. Adopted by Pentecostal parents she was raised to be a missionary. This did and didn't work out.

She scripted the novel into a BAFTA-winning BBC drama. 27 years later she re-visited that material in the bestselling memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? She has written 10 novels for adults, as well as children's books, non-fiction and screenplays. She writes regularly for the Guardian.
