The story of Atlas and Heracles.Atlas knows how it feels to carry the weight of the world; but why, he asks himself, does it have to be carried at all? In Weight--visionary and inventive, yet completely believable and relevant to the questions we ask ourselves every day--Winterson's skill in turning the familiar on its head to show us a different truth is put to stunning effect.

"One of the most worthwhile and singular reads of 2005. Jeanette Winterson creates an uncategorisable, meditative and moving book."
