Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson — Reviews

In its structure, Written on the Body most closely resembles monologue. It is an examination of the past, told as the narrator languishes alone in a rented room, at the end of a long, dry summer when the lack of rain has left the withering on the vine. It has not always been so for the narrator she or he recalls other summers, lush and fertile, filled with mutual desire. The path between then and now, a trail strewn with single-minded romantics, male and female lovers alike, is what the narrator must traverse again to determine what went wrong.
