The narrator of Written on the Body has neither name nor gender; the beloved is a married woman. As Winterson chronicles their consuming affair, she compels us to see love stripped of clichés and categories, as a visceral phenomenon necessary for emotional completion.
PRAISE FOR Written on the Body:
"Ms. Winterson's prose [gives] love a texture, a palpable quality, weighing it with the same care that one might cradle the loved one's head or hands."
--New York Times
