From the Back Cover:

"Winterson's most ambitious work...beautiful writing, shaped line by line into word sculptures....I salute Winterson's skill at word-turning and word-spinning, her ability to mint shining images in a few golden lines." — The Independent on Sunday, U.K.

"Several leaps forward in sophistication and technique from The Passion, which won the 1987 John Llewellyn Rhys Prize....a smooth-running...piece of machinery, which throws out... brilliant sparks." — The Montreal Gazette

"Dazzling...truly exciting to read." — The Times, U.K.

"Powerful." — The Toronto Sun

"Winterson soars with Art and Lies." — The Calgary Herald

"Expands the gender game...hurtles along so breathtakingly...Intriguing...Profound." — Now magazine

"If words were diamonds and sentences necklaces, Jeanette Winterson would be the De Beers of literature." — Entertainment Weekly

From the Inside Flap:

One of the most audacious and provocative writers on either side of the Atlantic now gives readers a dazzling, arousing, and wise improvisation on art, Eros, language, and identity. "A series of intense, artful musings that are exhilarating and visionary. . . . Unsettling yet strangely satisfying."--Newsday.
