This 'Reader's Guide' brings together, in an easily accessible form, the range of review and critical material on the novels of Jeanette Winterson. The book traces the early reception of each novel on its publication and examines it alongside larger critical debates. Merja Makinen develops the controversial discussion of Winterson as a lesbian novelist and the more consensual analysis of her as a postmodern writer.
