From Our Editors

Jeanette Winterson unleashes a tour de force novel combining the mythical with the wonderful in Sexing the Cherry. In it, the Dog Woman, a murderous creature, finds a baby floating in the Thames River. She adopts the child for her son and names him Jordan. Later, as a young lad, Jordan travels the world seeking wonder and knowledge, in a remarkable tale that melds the metaphysical and unfathomable with history and reality.
