Author(s): Jeanette Winterson
A 21st-century fiction that uses past, present and future as shifting dimensions of a multiple reality. Set in London, Paris, Capri and cyberspace, using fairy tales, contemporary myths and popular culture, it works at the intersection between the real and the imagined. Its territory is you.
Intense, erotic, incandescent in the power and beauty of its prose, The PowerBook is an astonishing achievement.
