The Hopi, an Indian tribe, have a language as sophisticated as ours, but no tenses for past, present, and future. The division does not exist. What does this say about time?

Matter, the most solid and well-known, which you are holding in your hands and which makes up your body, is now known to be mostly empty space. Empty space and points of light. What does this say about the reality of the world?

Such a fantastic book! Poetically and beautifully written and Winterson poses questions about our world in such a creative way. I couldn't stop thinking about the different issues she was raising. One of my all time favourite reads!

Both entertaining and thought provoking, Sexing the Cherry carries the reader along a journey of self-discovery and self-empowerment. This journey is entangled with sex, love, lies, loss, triumph, and the questioning of reality as it relates to the past and the present. The dynamic relationship between the Dog-Woman and Jordan demonstrates the capacity of the spirit and the heart to attain happiness, love, and understanding. Written from multiple first person points of view, the reader is afforded a unique understanding of the characters and their lives. Enjoyable on a variety of levels.

Very strange - but contained some excellent food for thought. Definitely will be reading her other books. A graphic fairy tale for lovers of magical realism.
