Jeanette Winterson’s ﬁction is well known for its multiple border-crossings and fantastic journeys through space, time, genre and gender. Her ﬁctional universes blur the boundaries between masculine and feminine, past and present, material and magical worlds. Her early novels, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, The Passion and Sexing the Cherry, employ diverse intertexts such as fairy tales, Grail legends and biblical stories, and a variety of chronotopes including the Napoleonic wars, carnival Venice and seventeenth-century London. In her latest novel, The.PowerBook, Winterson extends her exploration of the familiar motifs of storytelling, travel and time travel, discovery and self-discovery and the reinvention of bodies and selves, through a move into cyberspace.
