What does /lit/ think of Winterson?
>>
Well, that answers my question then.
>>
>>7662826
I've gotten the impression that she's based, but none of the back blurbs have made me interested in reading any particular book of hers.
>>
>>7662826
Written on the Body is a pretty great book. Its implications are kind of SJWish, but the writing's pretty touching and funny, besides being able to keep up such a hard gimmick for the whole thing (gimmick is that the narrator doesn't have a definite gender, in case you don't know).
>>
the small number who have read her really like her
>>
I enjoyed Oranges are Not the Only Fruit, or whatever it's called. It's been a while, though, and I'm not good at critiquing fiction.

>In defence of homeopathy

The only two pieces I've read by her, and they contain three outrageous stupidities. I hope her literature is better because I'm reading Oranges for s school, but I'm not counting on it.
>>
>>7662826
I liked Oranges and (less so) Why be Happy, that's all I've read of hers. Someone told me that that sexing the cherry or whatever is kinda shit.
She is a bit SJW, but she's warm as well.
>>
I've read Why Be Normal. My impression is that she seems pretty honest as well as warm, as >>7665950 put it. This made it easy to connect with her, even if there was very little experience or worldview that we share.
