Jeanette Winterson

  • 5 stars across 8 books
    Jeanette Winterson's first novel for children, Tanglewreck, was widely admired. Here in her second, readers will once more relish her free-spirited literary inventiveness and style. Jeanette won the Whitbread for her first book Oranges are Not the Only Fruit. She lives in Oxfordshire and travels extensively lecturing about her work.
