Jeanette Winterson

Jeanette Winterson's first novel was "Oranges are not the only fruit" written about Jeanette's childhood (although she does not refer to it as wholly autobiographical), being raised by evangelical parents somewhere in the north of England. Being a subject close to Jeanette's heart, "Oranges" also delves into Jeanette's teenage relationship with a young woman - a relationship that finally causes her to leave the church. "Oranges" became a successful BBC mini-series.

Much of her work is said to be written in the style of magic realism - although Jeanette herself denies this.
