Varför jag tycker om Jeanette Winterson

I don’t know how to answer. I know what I think, but words in the head are like voices under water. They are distorted. Hearing the words as they hit the surface is sensitive work. You will have to be a bank robber and listen and listen to the little clicks before you can open the safe.

I have a theory that every time you make an important choice, the part of you left behind continues the other life you could have had. […] There’s a chance that I’m not here at all, that all the parts of me, running along all the choices I did and didn’t make, for a moment brush against each other. That I am still an evangelist in the North, as well as the person who ran away. Perhaps for a while these two selves have become confused. I have not gone forward or back in time, but across in time, to something I might have been, playing itself out.

There is a certain seductiveness about dead things. You can ill treat, alter and recolour what’s dead. It won’t complain.

  1. Tur att du fått tag på boken, tydligen är den en av dem som försvinner i sökningar på Amazon (om du känner till Amazon-fail-”skandalen”)Synd att vi inte sågs i påsk, men tack för hälsningarna! :)

  2. Men hon är ju så citerbar ju! Ett citat ut Sexing the Cherry sitter som min bakgrundsbild just nu.
