A book like this is very tough to talk about. I am very fond of Jeanette Winterson's work, having read six other of her novels so far - but this one is a whole different slice of pie. The writing is in pretty much the same style I was used to, the poetic prose is vibrant and unexpected, but knowing this is a truer story than the rest made it often so painful, and so intimate and indiscreet. What I liked the most, and what I'm left with, is her acceptance of trauma as part of her story, the forgiveness towards her mothers, her understanding of past traumas jumping from one generation to the next - and, at the end of the day, the weird feeling that without this troubled childhood her identity wouldn't have been the same.

Thank you so much for sharing this book with me :) It will soon travel to the other side of the world as a wishlist surprise.
