This book provides students with an introduction to the work of Jeanette Winterson, and places her fiction in a clear historical, critical and theoretical context. It starts by exploring Winterson's biography, looking particularly at her relationship between her life, work and media presence. It then moves through discussion of each of the Winterson's novels, analysing her work in the context of postmodern, feminist, queer and Bakhtinian theories and also examining her experimentation with fictional form and technique. Including a timeline of key dates and an interview with the author, this guide offers an accessible reading of Winterson's work and an overview of the critical reception this has provoked.
