by Jeanette Winterson - £7.99 Vintage (1993)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780099193913 | ISBN 10: 0099193914
This is a love story and, like all Winterson's novels, a philosophical meditation, this time on the body: as the repository for our emotions and souls.
The object is a married woman, Louise, and the narrator is her lover, gender undeclared. The affair intensifies beyond anything either of the lovers has ever known or hoped for.
And as they dissect their passion and longing, Jeanette Winterson traces the topography of desire.
