From Our Editors
Written on the Body is an intensely sensual novel that celebrates the beauty, pain and impermanence of human existence. The narrator has neither name nor gender; the beloved is a married woman. As Winterson chronicles their consuming affair, she compels us to see love stripped of cliché and category, as visceral as blood and organs and as strange as an undiscovered continent.
From the Publisher
The most beguilingly seductive novel to date from the author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry. Winterson chronicles the consuming affair between the narrator, who is given neither name nor gender, and the beloved, a complex and confused married woman.
