I have chosen a passage from Jeanette Winterson’s Sexing the Cherry as our next translation. I thought it would be fitting to select a contemporary feminist writer as a counterpoint to our foray into Victorian feminism.
I do hope you find Winterson’s work as enjoyable as I do, and next time you think you have impossible parents, why not read her memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? ?
You’ll see everything in a different light afterwards…
You may explore Winterson’s world at her very rich website. I’m looking forward to hear your reactions!
