You can also read this post in German | Ihr könnt diesen Beitrag auch auf Deutsch lesen Jeanette Winterson is a British author, whose works I can only describe as fascinating and hypnotizing. They often deal with love and loss and include lgbt+ themes. But Winterson refuses to tell these stories chronologically and in a linear fashion. Instead, her works have an experimental character to them, with many intertextual influences. However, this post will not be about all her works, but about two specific ones: her first, autobiographical novel Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit and her memoir Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?
