SO MANY BOOKS, SO LITTLE TIME!
JEANETTE WINTERSON on LITERATURE
“Literature transforms and restores and brings people to their true selves. It is not a palliative, not luxurious, not a placebo. It is none of those gentle things. It is about confrontation, rather than consolation. It is about a challenge with the self: who you are and who you want to be and how you will work the world into your own shape.” Jeanette Winterson, in an interview with Lucasta Miller in the Guardian of October 22, 2005
