‘Oranges are not the only fruit’ by Jeanette Winterson

A recommended book. I didn’t like it.

I knew what to expect in that it was a coming-of-age novel about a lesbian growing up in a deeply religious family.

I was expecting it to be more lesbian that religious, but it wasn’t, it was very religious. It also had far too many seemingly unrelated stories that had some sort of metaphorical message – well I assume they did – I didn’t really get most of them.

Overall, not particularly impressed.
