Description
Now, with her first collection -- 17 stories that span her entire career -- Jeanette Winterson reveals all the facets of her extraordinary imagination. Whether transporting us to bizarre new geographies -- a world where sleep is illegal, an island of diamonds where the rich wear jewelry made of coal -- or revealing so perfectly, so exactly; the joy and pain of owning a brand-new dog, she proves herself a master of the short form.
