Show Summary Details


This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. Jeanette Winterson has achieved international recognition as one of the leading present-day British writers. No longer of exclusive interest for the lesbian readership that launched her to fame in the 1980s, her novels are read, enjoyed and hotly discussed both by the general public and academia. Thus, while film and theatre versions have been made of her most popular novels, the most experimental ones often appear in the syllabuses of university courses on contemporary British fiction, and are the subject of an increasing number of dissertations and critical essays both in Britain and elsewhere.
