Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Whitbread Prize for best first fiction.

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is a coming-out novel from Winterson, the acclaimed author of The Passion and Sexing the Cherry.

The narrator, Jeanette, cuts her teeth on the knowledge that she is one of God’s elect, but as this budding evangelical comes of age and comes to terms with her preference for her own sex, the peculiar balance of her God-fearing household crumbles.

    "I love everything Jeanette writes."
    What made the experience of listening to Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit the most enjoyable?

    I think it was enhanced by the author reading
    I think this always gives a more enjoyable experience, as the nuances and inflections are exactly as the authors intended.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit?

    Hard to say as I adore everything Jeanette writes !


    Have you listened to any of Jeanette Winterson’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to Why be happy when you can be normal, and loved that, but I think I may be somewhat biased!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The relationship between mother and daughter was particularly emotional for me


    Any additional comments?

    Next on my list is Sexing the cherry read by the fabulous Juliet Stevenson

    I have read and listened to better books by J.W.

    Story
    "The novel that gave me my wings"

    This is one of the most inspiring and life changing novels I have had the privilege of reading and exploring. With creativity, emotion, passion and imagination, The writer / reader transports me into a beautiful world in which her fictional and nonfictional experiences help me develop a sense of identity and self. It is a beautiful and colourful novel, novel, which would have taken determination and courage to write and read, and every word was a pleasure to hear.
