From the Publisher
A dazzling fusion of history, fable and myth; the story of Jordan and his mother, who live in pestilent London during the reign of Charles II.
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.
