Set in 17th-century England this is a novel of magical fantasy that celebrates the power of imagination as it juggles the readers perception of history and reality. A novel about love and sex; lies and truths; and 12 dancing princesses who lived happily ever after, but not with their husbands.
"A book of innocence and bawdiness, fury and joy...needs to be read and re-read" The Times "Read it and marvel. Jeanette Winterson's voice is startlingly original, and her imaginative feats are utterly dazzling" Cosmopolitan "Simple prose shows the subtlest of minds behind it, swift, confident and dazzling" Financial Times "Winterson juggles past and present, fantasy and reality, to produce an original and entertaining novel which invites us to re-examine our own perceptions of time" Sunday Times "Her stories and characters levitate off the page into dancing life... A bold, bizarre and timely book" Independent商品の説明をすべて表示する
The mother is routed in reality, which includes being practical and coping with being obese. She has no use for fantasy and emotion. The son lives in an incredible world of make believe. He makes fantastic voyages to imaginary lands. We are invited to experience both realities.
The son is endlessly chasing after an amazing woman he has only glimpsed, but learns about finding all you need within yourself. The book shows that you can make journeys through time and space within your own mind. The book is feminist in nature, and celebrates strong, independent women. I highly recommend it for open minded readers!
