Winner of the Whitbread Prize for best first fiction, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a coming-out novel from Winterson, the acclaimed author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry. The narrator, Jeanette, cuts her teeth on the knowledge that she is one of God’s elect, but as this budding evangelical comes of age, and comes to terms with her preference for her own sex, the peculiar balance of her God-fearing household crumbles.

🙈Lost On Me

Lo único rescatable es la controversia entre ser una persona religiosa asidua y ser homosexual. La historia en sí no me aportó nada. Y la versión disponible en inglés está tan mal hecha que llega a ser confusa, o de plano mi inglés es muy malo.

👍Worth reading

A curious book. Not one of my favourite books (and the author's writing style seems to me somewhat peculiar), but is definitely worth reading.

No supe que esperar de este libro cuando lo empecé a leer.

No sé, tal vez necesite leerlo de nuevo.

It’s not a word people use very often, which confuses me, because there are different kinds of infidelity, but betrayal is betrayal wherever you find it. By betrayal, I mean promising to be on your side, then being on somebody else’s.

heard her telling Mrs White about it. She said they dealt in unnatural passions. I thought she meant they put chemicals in their sweets.
