Winner of the Whitbread Prize for best first fiction.
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a coming-out novel from Winterson, the acclaimed author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry.
The narrator, Jeanette, cuts her teeth on the knowledge that she is one of God’s elect, but as this budding evangelical comes of age and comes to terms with her preference for her own sex, the peculiar balance of her God-fearing household crumbles.

Weighing up the church and personal beliefs
I love everything Jeanette writes.
I think it was enhanced by the author reading
I think this always gives a more enjoyable experience, as the nuances and inflections are exactly as the authors intended.
Hard to say as I adore everything Jeanette writes !
I have listened to Why be happy when you can be normal, and loved that, but I think I may be somewhat biased!
The relationship between mother and daughter was particularly emotional for me
Next on my list is Sexing the cherry read by the fabulous Juliet Stevenson
