Just pre-ordered this in a hardcover. It‘s been SO long since I‘ve posted on here and so long since I‘ve read anything new from Winterson. It‘s a good time to be alive friends.
I‘m so happy to attend online book festival events. Today, Jeanette Winterson talked about where humankind is headed & how so much of what‘s been described in science fiction has come to pass. Gender is an important issue (“a dick is not a magic wand”) plus we need to laugh at ourselves while simultaneously taking ourselves seriously. Her optimism lies with young people, in whom she sees a strong sense of social justice.
