    Jeanette Winterson’s bold and revelatory novels have established her as a major figure in world literature. This memoir is the chronicle of a life’s work to find happiness. It is a book full of stories: about a girl locked out of her home, sitting on the doorstep all night; about a religious zealot disguised as a mother who has two sets of false teeth and a revolver in the dresser drawer; about growing up in a north England industrial town in the 1960s and 1970s; and about the universe as a cosmic dustbin.

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    This book is difficult to get into even boring at times. It did not hold my interest for much of the chapters and as far as memoirs go I wasn't feeling it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeanette Winterson’s performances?

    I find her voice in the audible version to be very boring. I am however interested in the written version of her other Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit.


    Do you think Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I am not interested in hearing any more of this story since I was not captivated in the first place.
