The Stone Gods

by Jeanette Winterson - £8.99  Penguin Books (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780141032603 | ISBN 10: 014103260x

This new world weighs a yatto-gram...
 
On the airwaves, all the talk is of the new blue planet - pristine and habitable, like our own 65 million years ago, before we took it to the edge of destruction. And off the air, Billie and Spike are falling in love. What will happen when their story combines with the world's story, as they whirl towards Planet Blue, into the future? Will they - and we - ever find a safe landing place?
 
An interplanetary love story - of Billie and Spike, of the past and the future; a traveller's tale; a hymn to the beauty of the world. The Stone Gods is Jeanette Winterson at her brilliant best.
 
Playful, passionate, polemical, and frequently very funny, this is a novel which will change forever the stories we tell about the earth, about love and about stories themselves.
