An unassuming coming of age tale about love religion and repression Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit conducts a moving psychological study of a young British lesbian Across the novel s eight chapters Winterson follows a fictionalized version of herself Jeanette as she grows up in a strict working class Protestant household in plain but incisive prose the author considers the teen girl s struggle to reconcile her sexuality with her faith charts the highs and lows of her first romances with women and paints a vivid portrait of an unaccepting conservative mother Embedded within the main plot are hypnotic fairytales and Arthurian legends that illustrate key themes from the emotional toll of patriarchy to the impossibility of returning home unchanged The first person novel has often been read as thinly veiled memoir shocking in its time and tame today but Oranges is really rather experimental and literary in that Winterson glosses over central events hops around in time and muses on the nature of storytelling Well worth checking out

When I was a child I had found a pair of gloves in the middle of the street in my cul de sac They were black and worn with a little embroidered heart at each wrist I slipped them on and flexed my fingers amazed at how nicely they fit I took them home and put them in my sock drawer only taking them out on Thursdays for my bike ride down the street to piano lessonsThis book is exactly like those gloves I found this book while on a field trip for pre college English class crammed in backward on a shelf between two books by Anais Nin The title made me smile so I turned to the first page and read the introduction It is safe to say that Jeanette Winterson s writing wormed its way into my heart rather fast Oranges Are Not The Only Fruit is a great great read Winterson beautifully mixes religious theology with budding sexuality curiosity and identity It was nice to watch Jeanette the main character grow along with the conflict of accepting her demon In a lot of ways it reminds me of the documentary For The Bible Tells Me So

I tried to write this review eight minutes before I was supposed to go to work I did not meet the deadline I only mention this so I can make sure you know what uality shit you re getting when you shop here My reviews occasionally take longer than eight minutes to composeThough much much better than my miserable first experience with Winterson I am still unsure about her after reading this still plagued by minor annoyances As with that other one this book is riddled with what it seems to think are profound insights delivered in this showy I ll give you a minute to simmer on that way an almost uncomfortable way like someone telling you a bad joke and then staring at you all silently and expectantly That feeling in the ensuing awkward silence The state of me about 85% of the time while reading this Interspersed with these profoundies are little whimsy cutes that are I suppose intended to offset the serious tone like this novel is letting you know just how unserious it takes its very serious self all seriousness aside It makes for a weird time And it is serious material The coming of age of a lesbian and aspiring preacher in a devout household rejected by her church and her adoptive mother for her unnatural passions It sounds like something I would love because I adore the shredding of religious hypocrisy and am fascinated by people raised in such a crazy environment since it is so far removed from my own experience having been brought up by a religious skeptic and generally sane woman Unfortunately the tone is such an awkwardly comical one that it feels almost removed and the character of Jeanette often reads silly Like if you took the film version of Carrie because there is one only one took out the violence and replaced it with some America s Funniest Home Videos music It wasn t really my brand of comedy I guess but then again you should keep in mind you re dealing with someone who is roughly one pun away from being somebody s grandpa Unless you correctly think dick jokes are hilarious you might not take my word when it comes to comedyAt the same time we have these little asides where Percival s uest for the grail is told drawing some comparison where I guess Jeanette is Percival and the grail is umm her sexuality or something Her relationship with god I wasn t following there but I admit that bringing myths and the like into your story does make them seem magical and weighty and stuffGripes aside I was still invested in the story and I respect what it intended to do I liked the character of the mother the exploration of tight knit church communities and all the scenes where Jeanette is an outcast in school for telling bible stories about hellfire and damnation while totally convinced that she s doing a whole heap of good and not understanding why people are such dicks to her about it Mean spirited as I often am about extreme religious beliefs I was surprised to find myself happy that Jeanette unlike her family and congregation was able to reconcile her beliefs and her bodily needs so early in life because it s good when people are happy even if I feel I could make a pretty decent argument that they re crazy It s good for people to embrace their various sexualities rather than live miserable lives built on lies and acting and self hatred If I believed in a god I sure wouldn t worship herhim if I thought she was a bigot That would just be ridiculous rightEvery once in a while this novel is moving Sometimes it actually is funny I m going to give Winterson one book to either kick my ass or earn her third and final strike I m just California like that
