WINTERSON,  JEANETTE
Sexing the Cherry

The main part of this short book is pure historical novel, telling the story of Jordan who becomes assistant to the King’s gardener, Tradescant, and his mother who played not a minor role in the Great Fire of London.  The characters are larger than life with a wicked sense of humour; and a filthy, smelly London is vividly depicted.

Other parts of the novel float through time and space, meditating on the nature of both and passing through some unique interpretations of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, Rapunzel, and the Greek myth of Artemis and Orion. The characterisation in these sections is more archetypal & less rounded than in the main plotline, but interesting nonetheless.
